Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Surgery
What is Gallbladder?
Gall bladder is a pear shaped organ present close to the liver. Its function is to store and concentrate bile juice which is produced in the liver. It does not produce bile as many people think. Bile is a juice produced by the liver which helps the body to digest fat.
What are Gallstones?
Gallstones are stones which form within the gallbladder. They may vary in number and size. For management of these stones, size/shape and number is not relevant.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of gallstones are severe abdominal pain often called a gallstone ‘attack’ (colic) because they occur suddenly. Gallstone attacks often follow fatty meals, and they may occur during the night. A typical attack can cause the following :
- Sever pain in the right upper abdomen that increases rapidly and lasts from few minutes to several hours.
- Pain in the back between shoulder blades.
- Pain under the right shoulder.
- Nausea or vomiting.
Other symptoms of gallstones include:
- Abdominal bloating (gas formation)
- Recurring intolerance of fatty foods
Many patients with gallstones have no symptoms, these patients are said to be asymptomatic and these stones are called ‘Silent Stones’. However, they can anytime become symptomatic and cause complications.
