|Dear Maricel Parado
Even for small stone if symptom is there surgery is option. The gallbladder is really a small, pear-shaped pouch within the upper-right part of your abdomen (tummy). It stores bile, the digestive fluid made by the liver that can help to break down fatty foods.
Bile is made from cholesterol, bile salts and waste products. When these substances are out of whack, small, hard stones called gallstones can build. Gallstones often cause no symptoms and in many cases remain undetected. But they can cause pain, fever, jaundice, vomiting and nausea. If your gallstones cause severe symptoms, you might be advised to possess a cholecystectomy.
There's two ways of performing a cholecystectomy:
Laparoscopic (keyhole) cholecystectomy
This is the most common method of getting your gallbladder removed. The operation is completed utilizing a tiny camera and surgical instruments which are inserted through small incisions (cuts) inside your abdomen.
It might soon be possible to have keyhole surgery through a small incision. This is due to be reviewed by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) in late 2010.
The gallbladder is taken away through one large cut in your abdomen. This technique is known as open surgery. It's a more invasive operation than keyhole surgery, you need to be in hospital for extended and it takes longer to recover. Open surgical treatment is rare in modern practice.
Cholecystectomies (laparoscopic and open) are carried out under general anaesthetic (you are asleep during it).
