What are Gallstones?

Gallstones or gallbladder stones are masses formed in the gallbladder by the precipitation of bile components. Many people have asymptomatic gallbladder stones that don’t cause pain or any discomfort. However, when the stones obstruct the bile duct, it may result in acute cholestasis that leads to intense visceral pain in the upper right part of the abdomen. Gallstones or gallbladder stones can lie dormant in the body for years without any treatment. However, if the precipitation continues and the masses grow, gallstones can become a severe ailment that can only be treated with surgery.

Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is considered to be the safest and most effective treatment for gallstones. So, if you are looking for treatment for gallbladder stones in Delhi, you can consult with Pristyn Care laparoscopic surgeons and undergo the best treatment.

Diagnosis

During your initial consultation, the gallbladder stones surgeon is likely to check your symptoms physically and know more about the history of gallbladder stones in your family. The doctor will run a physical examination and recommend certain imaging tests to diagnose the gallstones. During the physical examination, the doctor will check the body, and ask about the diet and check for pain in the patient's abdomen. Tests for diagnosis of gallstones may include: 

  • Blood tests: To measure the amount of bilirubin in your blood and determine how well the liver functions.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP): A tiny camera is threaded down to your gastrointestinal (GI) tract to help the doctor identify gallstones stuck in your bile duct.
  • Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan: For better imaging of the gallbladder to analyze the signs of gallstones.

Procedure

The only effective treatment for gallbladder stones is cholecystectomy, which means removal of the gallbladder. At Pristyn Care, gallbladder removal is done through the laparoscopic technique. In laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery, the gallbladder doctor (who is basically an expert laparoscopic surgeon) makes a small incision and inserts a laparoscope with a tiny video camera mounted on top and surgical tools. The camera gives the surgeon a detailed and clear view of the abdomen that allows the surgeon to perform the surgery effectively. Laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery is a highly safe, effective and reliable treatment for gallbladder stones. In addition, the recovery time is much faster, and the incision will practically leave no scar.

What are the different types of gallbladder stones?

Almost 80% of gallbladder stones cases are related to cholesterol stones. The two most common types of gallbladder stones are:

  • Cholesterol Stones- These stones are the most common type of masses and have a yellow-green color.
  • Pigment Stones- These stones are small and dark in color and composed of bilirubin that comes from the bile, a fluid that the liver makes and gallbladder stores.

Who is more at risk of developing gallbladder stones?

Gallstone is a problem that is related to the body's ability to break down cholesterol. And there are many things that impact this ability, such as age, gender, weight, hormone imbalance, etc. The people who are more at risk of gallstones are:

  • Women are more vulnerable than men
  • People of age over 30
  • Overweight or obesity
  • People who lost weight suddenly or rapidly
  • Pregnant women or women on hormone therapy
  • Women on birth control pills
  • People with a family history of gallstones or diabetes
  • People with liver disease

What are the complications if gallbladder stones are left untreated?

Gallbladder stones may not cause any problem for a long time. But if the size of the stones keeps on increasing and they are left untreated, then you may experience the following complications.

  • Recurrent and intense abdominal pain and frequent vomiting
  • Jaundice if the common bile duct gets blocked
  • Acute pancreatitis in which the pancreas start swelling and cause multi-organ failure that can be fatal
  • Pus will start to form in the gallbladder
  • Gangrene & perforation of the gallbladder
  • Cholangitis which is a life-threatening biliary system infection
  • May lead to cancer in the gallbladder

How to prepare for gallbladder removal surgery?

The preparation of gallbladder removal surgery doesn’t require extreme measures. Firstly, some pre-operative tests will be performed like blood tests, ECG, X-ray, ultrasound of the gallbladder. The surgeon will prescribe medications if necessary. And most probably, the surgeon will ask you to stop taking aspirin, warfarin, and other blood thinner medicines.

Benefits of laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery

Surgery is needed to remove gallstones from the gallbladder. It can be done via open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. However, the laparoscopic technique is preferred by people because it offers many benefits like:

  • Patients experience less pain after the surgery
  • It can be performed within 45 minutes to 1 hour
  • Smaller incisions that minimize the risks of infection, excessive bleeding, etc.
  • Faster recovery and allow the patient to return to normal activities quickly
  • No major scars after surgery
  • Minimal chances of recurrence

Apart from all this, when you choose Pristyn Care to undergo laparoscopic gallstone treatment, you get additional benefits like 30% discount on diagnostic tests, single deluxe room, 100% insurance claim, and free follow-ups after surgery.

What are the recovery tips after gallbladder stones surgery?

Even though laparoscopic gallstone treatment is a safe procedure, the patient must be careful during the recovery period. A small mistake can have unwanted consequences. Therefore, it is better that you pay attention to every aspect of your life after surgery. The post-surgery care involves:

  • You will be under observation for 24 hours after the surgery so that the doctors can make sure your organs are functioning properly, i.e., there are no problems during urination or bowel.
  • Start by taking oral liquids on the day of the surgery such as water, clear soups, tea, coffee, etc.
  • The diet must involve fresh fruits, vegetables, and fibre-rich foods.
  • The dressing used to cover up the incisions are usually waterproof. So, you can take a bath when you are comfortable without peeling off the dressing/bandages.
  • Physical activities can be resumed after laparoscopic gallstone surgery very quickly. The patient is encouraged to move to increase the sense of well-being.
  • Medications are prescribed after the surgery to minimize the pain.
