What causes gallstones? When should you consider undergoing surgery?

MS, MBBS
General Surgeon
Ask Free Question
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. In few instances, it has been seen that small and solitary gallstones can be dissolved with oral medication like ursodiol and chenodiol. 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

Yes, this could well be piles or a fissure. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. Piles of an early grade also improves with general measures. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

if you have occasional acidity, lifestyle changes can help: lose excess weight, eat smaller meals, and avoid foods that seem to trigger heartburn such as fried or fatty foods, chocolate, and peppermint. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine may help, too. If necessary, occasional acid reflux can be treated with over-the-counter medication. If you have frequent acidity and burning pain in stomach due to acidity then you may have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcer in stomach and finally leads to cancer. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.
