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 best healthcare professionals discuss the medical history of the patient to identify the gallstones. They perform a physical examination and recommend imaging tests to diagnose gallstones. During the physical examination, the doctor will check the body, and ask about the diet and check for pain in the abdomen. The tests can be:

  • Blood tests: To measure the amount of bilirubin in your blood and to determine how well the liver is functioning.
  • 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

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. In addition, the recovery time is much faster, and the healed incision will practically leave no scar.

What-Dr. Mohsin Khan-Say-About-Gallstones-Treatment

Dr. Mohsin Khan

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 and pain free life.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can other diseases cause gallstones in the body?

Yes, certain health conditions significantly increase the risk of gallstones development. The list includes:

  • Cirrhosis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Diabetes and insulin resistance
Will going through gallstone surgery in Gurgaon be painful?

Only a minimal amount of pain is associated with laparoscopic gallstone surgery. The abdominal area, as well as the incision sites, will be sore during and after surgery. Still, it is natural to feel a slight pain in the shoulder or abdomen for a day or two. After that, the pain will subside for good.

Will laparoscopic surgery cure gallstones completely?

Of course, gallstones located in the gallbladder are removed entirely using the laparoscope. Hence, laparoscopic surgery is the right choice for you.

What is the procedure for gallstone diagnosis?

The most common procedure for diagnosing gallstones involves ultrasound imaging. It is a painless test that will use high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the gallbladder to identify the stones.

How to take care of the body after gallstones surgery?

Post-surgery, you will have to pay attention to your diet by limiting it to strictly liquid or bland dietary items for the first few days. As for your body, you should be as active as your body allows you to be. The good thing is that Pristyn Care surgeons in Gurgaon provide you with all the necessary postoperative tips and diets to ensure that you have a quick recovery.

How long does gallstone pain last?

What size of gallstones needs surgery?

Gallstone surgery may depend on the size and number of stones. You may have several gallstones measuring about 0.5 cm or one gallstone measuring up to 5 cm in diameter. You may have one big stone or several grain-sized stones. It is the size that determines the need for surgery and the number of stones in the gallbladder. A gastroenterologist or a gallstone specialist would be the best person to determine whether you need surgery for your gallstone removal or not.

Is there any gallbladder stone remedy in Ayurveda?

The common ayurvedic medicine for gallstones involves using:

  • Turmeric
  • Aloe Vera
  • Gokshura (dried fruits of Tribulus Terrestris)
  • Kalonji (Nigella Sativa)
  • Black pepper

These ingredients can be used to cleanse the body and improve the overall health of the individual. However, there is no evidence that using these remedies will cure gallstones.

Is medicine for gallstones effective? 

Yes. There are several medicines available that can dissolve gallstones and make it easier for the body to excrete them through waste. One of the most common medicines is Ursodiol or Chenodiol that is available as oral bile acid pills. The medicine breaks down the stones made up of cholesterol slowly. You should also know that the stones may take two years or longer to dissolve completely with this medicine.

Does gallstone cause heartburn?

Yes. Heartburn is one of the most common symptoms of gallbladder stones. It usually arises after a meal and gets worse when the person bends over or lies down. Sometimes, heartburn may persist several hours after eating.

How to test for gallstones at home? 

It is not possible for you to diagnose gallstones at home. To confirm that you have gallbladder stones, you’ll need the following tests:

  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Endoscopic ultrasound
  • Oral Cholecystography
  • Hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid scan (HIDA)
  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Blood tests
What is a gallbladder operation called? 

The gallbladder removal procedure is called a cholecystectomy. If the open technique is used for the surgery, the name changes to open cholecystectomy. And if the laparoscopic technique is used, the name becomes laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Is there a permanent cure for gallbladder stones? 

The permanent cure for gallbladder stones is undergoing surgery that involves the removal of the gallbladder itself. Once the bladder is removed, the bile juice won’t be stored in a place and there will be no chances of recurrence.

Can infection occur in the gallbladder due to stone? 

Yes. If the stones get stuck in the neck of the bladder, it can cause inflammation and block the flow of bile juice as well. This will cause a serious infection that can be fatal if not treated on time.

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.

Can gallbladder stones cause cancer?

Gallstones are one of the most common risk factors for gallbladder cancer. Around 4 out of 5 people who get diagnosed with gallbladder cancer have stones. But it happens rarely.

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.

Will gallbladder removal surgery permanently cure gallstones?

Yes. Once the gallbladder is removed surgically, the bile juice won’t be stored and flows directly from the liver into the stomach. Therefore, the cholesterol or bilirubin won’t precipitate due to prolonged storage and the chances of stone formation become zero.
