What are Gallstones?

The gallbladder is a tiny organ in the upper right belly, just behind the liver. It’s a pouch holding bile, a green-yellow liquid that aids digestion. Gallbladder problems often occur when something like a gallstone blocks the bile duct.

Most gallstones form when bile chemicals, such as cholesterol, solidify. Gallstones are quite prevalent and typically asymptomatic. Gallstone pain is often described as sharp and intense, radiating from the upper abdomen. Gallbladder surgery in Dubai is a common solution for gallstone-related issues. Understanding the unique nature of this pain aids in timely diagnosis.

Gallbladder Surgery in Dubai

Cholecystectomy, or gallbladder surgery in Dubai, is one of the most common operations performed on adults in Dubai. Because the gallbladder isn’t a necessary organ, you can live a healthy life without it. Cholecystectomy comes in two varieties:

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy: This is a common procedure that necessitates general anaesthesia. In most cases, the surgeon will make three or four incisions in your belly. They’ll next delicately remove your gallbladder after inserting a small, illuminated gadget into one of the incisions. If there are no issues, you can normally go home the same or the next day.

Open cholecystectomy: When the gallbladder is inflamed, diseased, or scarred, this procedure is usually performed. This operation may also be performed to address complications following a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Following gallbladder removal, you may suffer loose stools. Rerouting bile from the liver to the small intestine is required when a gallbladder is removed. Bile is less concentrated since it no longer passes through the gallbladder. The initial consequence is a laxative effect that can produce diarrhea, but this will resolve independently for most people.
