We are sorry for the problem which you faced during pregnancy but in our opinion you should immediately get laparoscopic cholecystectomy done. Operative intervention may be performed in any trimester of pregnancy. Historical recommendations were to delay surgery until the second trimester in order to reduce the rates of spontaneous abortion and preterm labor. Recent literature has shown that pregnant patients may undergo laparoscopic surgery safely during any trimester without any increased risk to the mother or fetus. Postponing necessary operations until after parturition may, in some cases, increase the rates of complications for both mother and fetus.
It has been suggested that the gestational age limit for successful completion of laparoscopic surgery during pregnancy is 26 to 28 weeks. This has been refuted by several studies in which laparoscopic cholecystectomy and appendectomy have been successfully performed late in the third trimester.
Although laparoscopy can be performed safely in pregnancy with good fetal and maternal outcomes, the long-term effects to the children is not there. One recent study evaluated eleven children from one to eight years and found no growth or developmental delay in pregnant women.
