Gall bladder surgery and recovery

Gall bladder surgery and the recovery time after the surgery are very important for a patient undergoing the surgery.



he gall bladder surgery is performed to remove the gall stones or to remove the gall bladder itself. During laproscopic surgical procedure the doctor could not see the gall bladder clearly due to excess bleeding in some patients.

Such patients are treated with a conventional gall bladder surgery and the recovery time for this surgery is more.The most common types of the surgeries that are performed for treating gall bladder disease are the traditional type of surgery and the laproscopic surgery.

The traditional gall bladder surgery and recovery give a lot of pain for the patient whereas the more modern gall bladder surgery and its procedures give the patient less pain. It takes around 7 weeks for recovery if the patient is treated with the conventional gall bladder surgery and associated treatment.

A single big incision of approximately eight cm is made in the abdomen of the patient during the traditional gall bladder surgery. A big scar is left on the patient's abdomen after the surgery.

The patient is required to stay in the hospital for a longer time before being discharged from the hospital.A laproscope is used to view the internals of the abdomen in the laproscopic gall bladder surgery and treatment.

The laproscope gives a clear view of the gall bladder. The blood loss in a laproscopic surgery is minimal when compared to that of the conventional gall bladder surgery and its procedures. Usually four small incisions are required for a laproscopic surgery.

The surgical instruments are inserted through these incisions to perform the operation. The bile that is stored in the gall bladder is discharged outside the body before it is removed.

One of the major disadvantages of a laproscopic surgery is that accidental damage to the duct that is attached to the gall bladder and to the intestines can occur.

Care should be taken by the doctor to avoid such complications. After a gall bladder surgery and its procedures, dietary restrictions are to be followed by the patient for them to recovery faster.

Usually high fatty foods are avoided after the gall bladder surgery since the bile that is discharged from the liver is not sufficient to aid digestion of high fatty foods.

Symptoms like, pain in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, and bloating are to be considered seriously since these may indicate a gall bladder disease. Check with your medical consultant if you have any of these symptoms.
