Gallstones: What Is It?

The gallbladder is an organ situated below the liver. It stores bile, the food-digesting liquid secreted by the liver. This liquid is flown through the bile duct into the small intestine to digest the food and fats. In some patients, small crystal-like objects are formed in the gallbladder. These are called gallstones. The gallstone can range in size from the size of a grain to that of a golf ball. Although some people may only have one gallstone, others may have several. When gallstones block the bile duct, it prevents the flow of bile. This blockage can cause discomfort and severe gallstone pain. Gallstone surgery is used to treat gallstones.

Gallstones : Causes

There are various reasons behind the formation of gallstones in the gallbladder. These include excess cholesterol or bilirubin in the bile juice stored in the gallbladder. Sometimes, the gallbladder may not empty the bile properly. The bile gets concentrated and results in the formation of gallstones.

Symptoms of Gallstones

    There may be no visible signs or gallstone symptoms. The following indications and symptoms may appear when a gallstone obstructs the bile duct: - A sharp, sudden abdominal pain on the upper right side - A sharp, sudden abdominal pain in the middle, immediately below the breastbone - Right shoulder pain - Back pain between the shoulder blades - Nausea or vomiting - Gallstone pain might last anywhere from a few minutes to many hours.

How to Diagnose Gallstones?

    The diagnosis of gallstones is made with the help of specific tests and procedures. The two most common tests include: Abdominal ultrasound: The most common test for identifying gallstones is the abdominal ultrasound. The stomach region is probed with a transducer that is moved back and forth. Images of gallstones are produced from the signals received by a computer. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS): An endoscope, a small, flexible tube, enters the digestive tract through the mouth. A transducer present in the tube produces sound waves. These are converted into images. Blood tests: Apart from imaging, blood tests can help detect complications of gallstones, including infection, gallstone pancreatitis, jaundice, etc. There are a few other tests by which gallstones are detected, such as using imaging tests: - Oral Cholecystography, - Computerised Tomography (CT), - Hepatobiliary Iminodiacetic Acid (HIDA) scan and - Magnetic Resonance Cholangio Pancreatography (MRCP). - Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography (ERCP)

What Is the Treatment for Gallstones?

    Gallbladder Removal (Cholecystectomy): If gallstones become recurrent or problematic, a cholecystectomy might be advised by your physician. The removal of the gallbladder does not impact overall survival, as one can lead a healthy life without it. Instead, bile produced by the liver flows directly into the small intestine, bypassing the gallbladder. Medications for Gallstone Dissolution: Some specific medications can aid in dissolving gallstones. However, this dissolution process can extend over several months or even years. It's important to note that there's a possibility of gallstone recurrence once the treatment is discontinued.

When Will The Doctor Suggest Surgery?

    Your doctor may recommend gallstone or gallbladder surgery when the gallbladder is severely swollen or infected. Two types of surgeries are commonly performed i.e., a laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopic cholecystectomy) or an open surgery (open cholecystectomy).
