Who needs Cholecystectomy

A cholecystectomy is a surgery that is done to remove our gallbladder. The gallbladder is an organ which is placed right underneath our liver and the upper side of our abdomen. Our gallbladder’s duty is to store the digestive fluid which our liver produces.

Your doctor may recommend a cholecystectomy if you have:

  • Gallstones in the gallbladder (cholelithiasis)
  • Gallstones in the bile duct (choledocholithiasis)
  • Gallbladder inflammation (cholecystitis)
  • Large gallbladder polyps
  • Pancreas inflammation (pancreatitis) due to gallstones

Cholecystectomy is a common surgery with close to none risk of complications. In many cases, a person is suggested to go home on the very same day as the treatment. The procedure of cholecystectomy is done by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tool through four small incisions in our body. Its purpose is to see the inside of our abdomen and remove the gallbladder. This is also known as laparoscopic cholecystectomy. 

Less invasive gallbladder removal is called laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This surgery uses a special tool known as a laparoscope to remove the gallbladder. It requires multiple small incisions rather than one large incision, it usually takes 4 incisions, each one inch or less in length.

Cholecystectomy is the most common general surgery procedure done to the patients that are older than the age of 65 years

Cholecystectomy Benefits

A cholecystectomy is done to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by the dysfunctional gallstones. Multiple treatments which are done in place of Conservative treatments, such as dietary modifications, usually can't stop gallstones from recurring. A cholecystectomy is the only way to prevent gallstones. Most of the times people don't usually face any other or digestive problems after a cholecystectomy. But there are cases when people might experience occasional loose stool after the procedure, which generally cures over the passing time.
Following your procedure, you are supposed to discuss with your doctor any changes in your bowel habits and activities. The pace and quality of your recovery is also dependent on your overall health and the type of procedure you have gone through. People undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy may be able to go back to work in a matter of days while the ones undergoing an open cholecystectomy may need a week or more to recover enough to return to work.

Cholecystectomy Recovery

Most people are allowed to go home the same day as the treatment. There are a few cases of complications but it does not require a stay in the hospital for more than a day. In the cases of a long incision in our abdomen, the doctor might recommend us to stay in the hospital longer than usual. We can not always know about what type of procedure will be used as it depends on the condition and the doctor’s decision.

To make your recovery quicker and easier you should:

  1. Ask a friend or family member to drive you home and stay close the first night after surgery.
  2. Anaesthesia takes time to wear off, keep yourself company to stay safe.
  3. Recovery varies depending on your procedure
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

People are recommended to go home on the same day as their surgery. You can eat and drink without pain and are able to walk without help.

  • Open cholecystectomy

Expect to spend two or three days in the hospital recovering. Once at home, it may take four to six weeks to fully recover.

What To Do After Cholecystectomy:

  • Rest whenever you feel tired. 
  • Get enough sleep to recover quickly.
  • Try to have an activity, walk every day. Gradually increase the time you walk for every day. 
  • Avoid the activities which might tire you out such as biking, jogging, weightlifting, and aerobic exercise, until your doctor says it is okay.
  • You may shower 24 to 48 hours after surgery if the doctor suggests. 
  • Eat smaller meals more often instead of fewer larger meals.
  • Drink plenty of fluids
