What are gallstones?

When the excess cholesterol present in the bile turns into crystals, they are called gallstones. The gallstones do not let the gallbladder empty properly. Gallstones are of different sizes and sometimes cause the inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis). If the gallstones form repeatedly, laparoscopic surgery is needed.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of gallstones by laparoscopic surgeon entails a discussion on patients’ medical history, physical examination as well as lab and imaging tests. During the physical examination, the doctor may check the patient’s body, ask what he or she eats during the day and check for pain in the abdomen. The doctor may ask for other tests such as blood tests, Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangitis-Pancreatography (ERCP) or an Abdominal Ultrasound and CT scan.

Surgery

Cholecystectomy is the other name of gallstone surgery. The experts at Pristyn Care recommend Laparoscopic Surgery. In laparoscopic gallstone surgery, the doctor makes a small incision and inserts a laparoscope that has a tiny video camera mounted on top and surgical tools. The tube, camera, and tools are inserted and the surgeon performs the surgery while looking at a TV monitor to remove the gallstones. Also, the recovery time is much faster and the healed incision will practically leave no scar.

12 Years Experience

“Gallbladder removal is the only final solution to the problem of gallstones. But many a times, I come across patients who fear the surgery and look for ways to remove only the gallstones. This is also because, they confuse gallstones treatment with that of kidney stones. See, both are different. Unlike kidney stones, where the kidney is healthy and the stone itselves can be removed as a treatment, gallstones result from diseased gallbladder. Once they start forming, they keep crystallizing unless the entire gallbladder is removed permanently. Otherwise, you would experience severe and unbearable pain that will last for hours and spread to the entire right side of your system. With passing days, it would only become more frequent and worse each day. This is why I suggest you do not trust just home remedies or quacks and seek a good treatment as soon as possible. This will solve your problem from its core and allow you to live a better healthy life.”

Though there is no normal size for gallstones, a gallstone of 1.5 cm (15mm) is considered large. Normally, multiple gallstones can be present in the bladder measuring up to the size of 0.5 cm. However, it is rare for the stones to grow up to 5 cm.

Are gallstones dangerous?

Gallstones themselves are not dangerous or fatal. However, they can cause complications that can be life-threatening. That’s why doctors often advise not to leave gallstones untreated for a very long time.

Is it necessary to remove the gallbladder for gallstones treatment?

It may not be necessary to remove the gallbladder to treat gallstones. In some cases, the stones can be safely removed if they are not causing any symptoms. Gallbladder removal is recommended when gallstones are symptomatic and causing problems in the pancreas, bile duct, or bladder itself.

What are the different types of gallbladder stones?

Gallbladder stones are divided into three different types based on their composition. These types are explained below:

  • Cholesterol Stones- It is the most common type of gallstone. Around 35% to 90% of stones present in gallstones are cholesterol stones. They can be light yellow, dark green, brown, or chalk white in color and have an oval shape. Usually, their size is between 2 to 3 cm long, but they can also grow larger if left untreated for a long time.
  • Pigment Stones- This type of gallstone is composed primarily of bilirubin, which is an insoluble bilirubin pigment polymer, and calcium (calcium phosphate) salts present in the bile. Around 2% to 30% of stones present in the gallbladder are bilirubin or pigment stones. They are small and often dark in color.
  • Mixed Stones- Also known as brown pigment stones, they are composed of 20-80% of cholesterol. The rest of the constituents can be calcium carbonate, palmitate phosphate, bilirubin, and other bile pigments, such as calcium bilirubinate, calcium palmitate, and calcium stearate. These types of stones usually form when the biliary tract gets infected.

All these three types of stones can be present in the gallbladder altogether or alone. But in each scenario, you will need proper treatment for them.

Why should gallbladder stones not be left untreated?

When left untreated, gallbladder stones can turn into a serious medical issue. If you don’t take a proactive approach for your health and consult a doctor to remove the stones, it can cause the following complications:

  • Inflammation of the gallbladder(Cholecystitis)- When the stone gets stuck in the bladder, it will cause inflammation, severe pain, and fever.
  • Blockage of the common bile duct- When the stones enter the bile duct and get stuck there, it causes infection in the bile duct, jaundice, and severe pain as well.
  • Blockage in the pancreatic duct- Pancreas is connected to the bile duct directly. Hence, there is a high possibility that the stones can travel to the pancreatic duct as well. If this happens, it will cause inflammation in the pancreas (also known as pancreatitis). Due to the inflammation, you will experience intense and constant pain in the abdomen and may need immediate hospitalization.
  • Gallbladder cancer- Frequent occurrences of gallstones can increase the risk of gallbladder cancer as well. Though it is rare, it is better that you seek proper treatment to reduce the chances of gallbladder cancer.

Ignoring gallbladder stones is not advisable under any circumstances. You should consult a doctor and discuss what you can do to get rid of the stones permanently.

Prevention of Gallbladder Stones

It is mostly our lifestyle that increases the risk of gallbladder stone formation. Therefore, you can prevent gallstones by making the following changes in your daily life:

  • Do not skip meals- Try your best to stick with the usual meal times each day. Skipping meals can cause excess bile secretion and deposition.
  • Lose weight slowly- Being overweight is a risk factor for gallstone development. So, if you are trying to lose weight, take things slow. Don’t push your body to its limits in order to lose weight as rapid weight loss can cause the liver to secrete extra cholesterol, which can further increase the risk of gallstones.
  • Eat high-fiber foods- Foods that are rich in fiber ensure that the levels of bad cholesterol in the body are minimal. Furthermore, fiber keeps the digestive system moving and helps to flush out the bile from the body. Therefore, it is crucial that you add more fiber to your diet.
  • Exercise regularly- It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to do an extensive workout, being physically active is enough. The less you move, the slower the digestion process will be. As a result, the bile won’t flush out correctly. Invest some time in exercising and leave the sedentary lifestyle behind.
  • Take prescribed medications- People who are at high risk of developing gallstones due to heredity or other factors can take medicines to lower the risk of gallstone formation.

You can talk to a gallstone specialist to find out what else you can do to prevent gallstones.
