It also amazes me that the most common operation in North America causes cancer over a longitudinal period of time. Every year, more than a half a million people in the United States and more than 50,000 people in Canada undergo gallbladder surgery.
The gallbladder is situated in the upper right side of the abdomen, under the liver and above the duodenum. Its function is to transport the bile produced by the liver into the bile ducts and then into the small intestine when needed. Bile is requested after eating because it is used in the process of digestion. Until then, the bile remains stocked inside the gallbladder and is being concentrated. You must not worry that your digestion will be affected after the removal of the gallbladder; most of the patients do not have problems with that.
Smoking cigarettes, working with volatile organic compounds that you can breathe in, such as paint and printing ink solvents, the exhaust fumes of cars and diesel engines, factory chimneys belching out tons of smoke, analgesics such as paracetamol, pesticides on your fruit and vegetables that you have failed to wash off, alcohol, etc, etc, etc.
1. Gallstone Prevention- Did you know that your diet is most likely the cause for your gallstones? And the first way to treat a problem is to prevent the problem from occurring again. Foods that are often associated with gallstones forming are high fat foods, high cholesterol foods, fried foods, eggs, pork, onions, fowl, milk, citrus, corn, milk, beans and nuts. Though eliminating these all these foods is impossible, it is important to moderate the gallstones causing foods.
As soon as the patient is awake, the breathing tube is then taken to another room called the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, where they will monitor you until the anesthesia is completely out of the system. In this room, you'll be watched carefully for any signs of pain or change in the vital signals, or any complication such as infection. This can be very dangerous for the patient.
Gallstones during its initial development show no signs or symptoms. In the initial stage, gallstones are not calcified. They are also of negligible size. Therefore they are rarely detected through x-rays.
There are only four small cuts in the abdomen, that's why there are no pains after the operation and the recovery of the patients is fast and they may return to their daily activities.
Different studies on kidney stones showed that there are four types of stones. The most common type contains calcium that is a normal part of a healthy diet. Calcium that is not used by the bones and muscles goes to the kidneys. In most people, the kidneys flush out the extra calcium with the rest of the urine. People who have calcium stones keep the calcium in their kidneys. The most common combination is called calcium oxalate.
