I had a laproscopic surgery for gall bladder stones&now my bilirubin level is12.I went for scan, its result is mild hepatomegaly, is it dangerous?

Possibly. If you just had the surgery or recently it could be that they cut your bile duct, occluded your bile duct, or you have a leak from the liver. A ct scan will show fluid collections to determine if possible leak. You need to look at indirect bilirubin to know if it is obstruction. I would rule those out first and if negative the liver needs to be evaluated maybe biopsy, see your surgeon.
Depends. Do you mean bilirubin of 12, which is very high? Or do you mean 1.2 ? A very high bilirubin may mean bile duct problem or marked liver disease, hepatitis, etc. Very high bilirubin needs doctor care ; treatment now, urgently. Hepatomegaly by ultrasound can mean nothing or is a non meaningful finding. Very high bilirubin, if it is 12, needs doctor care now.

Yes. You might have transient post prandial pain for a few weeks after surgery, but this goes away in nearly all cases. You will lead a life, not only normal, but better than before because you will not have any more pain when you eat. And surgery is laparoscopic these days, so you should be out of the hospital on the same day or at most one day after surgery, with small scars and minimal pain. Read more...

My aunt has gall bladder stones. Is there any ways in alternative medicine to cure it without surgery? Or any foods that can cure it?

YES. I strongly agree that removing one's gallbladder should be the last resort rather than initial treatment.I've had many patients have great success with natural therapies to dissolve gallstones & flush them out of the liver/gallbladder.

No. Gallstones can be observed if there is no discomfort or problems. Gallstones that cause pain or nausea usually are best treated with surgery to resolve the problem. Actgall is a medication that may dissolve some gallstones, but can take 2-3 years, does not work on large or calcified stones & gallstones can return if medication is stopped. Read more...

Depends. Gallstones are the result of a disease process and only resolved by the removal of the gallbladder. If pain is not a symptom, there could be other vague symptoms present. Also, why wait for a severe attack and possible related complications. While surgery is not immune to complication, it is very safe. A sincere discussion with a surgeon will help you decide.
