Recovery Times and Side Effects from Gall Bladder Surgery

Many people who are due to have gall bladder surgery do not know what to expect when it comes to the side effects of this type of procedure or the recovery times required. Well, the first thing to remember is that this type of surgery can be carried out in one of two ways. Depending on the problem and a number of other factors, you may have to have open surgery for your gall bladder issue. Alternatively, you may be able to have the operation through keyhole surgery. The type of surgery you have will have an impact on the side effects as well as the recovery period.

Those that have keyhole surgery

Gall bladder surgery If you are having a gall bladder operation through the use of keyhole surgery, the procedure will be far less invasive and involved. In fact, you should be able to go home on the day the procedure is carried out as long as there are no complications. In addition, the recovery period is much shorter than with open surgery. In general, you may be looking at around two weeks to recover from keyhole gall bladder surgery, after which time you can go back to your normal routine.

Those that have open surgery

The other alternative is open surgery, which is a far more involved procedure. When you have this type of surgery, you will be kept in hospital for a number of days before you are allowed to be discharged and go home. The recovery period following on from this type of open surgery is generally around six to eight weeks, so you will be out of action for some time before you can resume normal activities and routines.

 

Side effects of this type of procedure

You do not have to worry about long term effects of gall bladder surgery, as you can live a normal life without one. You will, however, experience some side effects from having this type of procedure carried out, although these are short term effects. Some of these include:

  • Swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the woundsGall bladder surgery
  •  Nausea due to painkillers or anesthetic
  •  Stomach and shoulder pains
  •  Bloating and gas
  •  Diarrhea
  •  Low mood and feeling irritable
  •  Fatigue

Possible Problems Stemming from Liver Surgery

Liver surgeryThe liver is a vital organ in the body and it performs a number of crucial functions. This organ is responsible for making, breaking, and storing substances. It helps with all sorts of bodily functions such as digestion, blood clotting, and the storage of fat and glucose. This is just part of the functions that this vital organ provides, which is why it is important to keep your liver in the best condition possible.

If you do have a medical problem that affects the liver, you may have to undergo liver surgery. The liver is an organ that we cannot live without so any conditions that have a major effect could result in the need for surgery. This can be major surgery and as with all major surgical procedures, it can come with risks. It is important to familiarize yourself with the possible risks so that you are fully prepared for your procedure.

Some of the main risks of liver surgery

Liver surgeryThere are a number of potential risks and side effects that can stem from having liver surgery. Some of the ones that you should bear in mind if you are having this type of surgery include:

  •  Severe bleeding: Because of the amount of blood in the liver, an operation could result in heavy bleeding when the organ is cut. However, expert surgeons have the techniques and skills to minimize on this risk.
  • Leakage of bile: Another risk during a liver operation is the possibility of bile leakage. The liver contains a number of bile ducts and the bile can leak from these once a cut has been made to the surface of the organ. This is a relatively rare occurrence and in most cases it sorts itself out without the need for additional treatment.
  • Liver failure: If you have a section of the liver removed because of conditions such as cancer, the amount of the organ that is left behind may not be sufficient for your body. This could then lead to liver failure. This is one of the most serious possible problems connected to this type of surgery.
  • Infections: As with many major surgical procedures, there is a risk of infection when you have liver surgery. This could include one of a range of infections or even multiple infections such as chest infections, abdominal infections, and infections of the wounds. In most cases, antibiotics are used to treat these.
