Causes of Gallstones and Few Reasons Behind To Opt For Surgery

Causes of Gallstones and Few Reasons Behind To Opt For Surgery

How and why are gallstones formed?

The bile in your body contains enough chemicals to dissolve cholesterol excreted by your liver. In case your liver starts excreting more cholesterol than your bile has the capability to dissolve, the excess cholesterol crystallizes and forms stones. Bile may become concentrated if the gallbladder doesn't empty in the time leading to the formation of gallstones.

A number of factors can increase the risks of formation of gallstones like:

  • High cholesterol
  • Being obese/overweight
  • Being an American Indian or Mexican American
  • Being female
  • Falling in the age group of 60 or above
  • A family history of gallstones
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Diabetes
  • Consumption of cholesterol-lowering medications

When should you consider undergoing surgery?

In some cases gallstones that are detected during ct scan or ultrasound (without any symptoms) don't require surgery. If you do not feel aggravating pain in your upper right abdomen or other signs and symptoms, then one can postpone the surgical process according to the need. The surgery for gallstones is also known as cholecystectomy and is done through laprascopy, where in 5 mm to 10 mm small cuts are made on the abdomen and surgery is performed. Recovery is extremely fast and one can join work the very next day and is one of the most commonly performed sugery.

However, you need to opt for surgery to remove the gallbladder necessarily in the following cases-

  •  sudden inflammation or infection in the gallbladder
  •  if you experience recurring instances of intense pain due to the gallstones
  •  certain growths known as polyps develop in your gallbladder which is larger than 1 cm in size and begin to give rise to numerous symptoms.
  •  if you have pancreatitis, which is a condition involving inflammation of pancreas due to gallstones
  •  if the wall of your gallbladder gets calcified
  •  your immune system is damaged
  •  you are experiencing symptoms and your gallbladder has ceased to function

If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general surgeon.

Last night I woke up and went for toilet. But I feel lower abdomen cramp and rectal pain. After toilet I pass wind. Then I came to bed for sleep. But again I feel abdominal discomfort and rectal pain. I wind pass for 2nd and 3rd time. After that I got some relief. Morning I feel again little rectal pain time of toilet. My question is what was that? Is it for gas. I have too much gas problem. Also constipation.

It is not clear why you say your digestive system is weak. If really not digesting you van take digestive enzyme Aristozyme . People unknowingly say their digestion is weak
