First, it helps to understand why you're having diarrhea. Diarrhea after gallbladder removal seems to be related to the release of bile directly into the intestines. Normally, the gallbladder collects and concentrates bile, releasing it when you eat to aid the digestion of fat. When the gallbladder is removed, bile is less concentrated and drains more continuously into the intestines, where it can have a laxative effect.
The amount of fat you eat at one time also plays a role. Smaller amounts of fat are easier to digest, while larger amounts can remain undigested and cause gas, bloating and diarrhea.
Although there isn't a set gallbladder removal diet, the following tips may help minimize problems with diarrhea after you've had your gallbladder out:
Increase the fiber in your diet. This can help normalize bowel movements. Add soluble fiber, such as oats and barley, to your diet. But be sure to increase the amount of fiber slowly, such as over several weeks, because too much fiber at first can make gas and cramping worse.
Eat smaller, more-frequent meals. This may ensure a better mix with available bile. A healthy meal should include small amounts of lean protein, such as poultry, fish or fat-free dairy, along with vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
You may also try limiting foods that tend to worsen diarrhea, including:
Very sweet foods
Talk with your doctor if your diarrhea doesn't gradually go away or becomes more severe, or if you lose weight and become weak. Your doctor may recommend medicines, such as loperamide (Imodium A-D), which slows down intestinal movement, or medications that decrease the laxative effect of bile, such as cholestyramine (Prevalite). Your doctor may also suggest that you take a multivitamin to compensate for malabsorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
Fortunately, the gallbladder is an organ that people can live without. Losing it won’t even require a change in diet. Once the gallbladder is removed, bile flows out of the liver through the hepatic ducts into the common bile duct and goes directly into the small intestine, instead of being stored in the gallbladder.
Laparoscopic surgery is a "minimally invasive" procedure commonly used to treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Unlike traditional surgery of the intestines where a long incision down the center of the abdomen is required, at World Laparoscopy Hospital laparoscopic surgery requires only small "keyhole" incisions in the abdomen.
At World Laparoscopy Hospital we treat conditions like:
- Gall Bladder stones
- Obesity and Metabolic surgery
- Anorectal conditions- Piles, fistula & fissures
- Solid Organs Minimal Access Surgery
- Intestinal Surgery
- Ovarian cyst surgery
- Fibroid surgery
- Tubal surgeries
- Endoscopic procedure including ERCP
- Minimal Access Surgery for Cancer
Piles are also called haemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are masses, clumps, cushions of tissue in the anal canal - they are full of blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers. Haemorrhoids are classified into two general categories: internal and external.
The treatment options available are as follows:
- Depending on the diagnosis, the doctor advises if home treatment is all you need or further intervention is required. Lifestyle and dietary modifications such as regular physical exercise, plenty of fluids and a high fibre diet provide symptomatic relief.
- Surgery: Surgery is used for particularly large piles. Generally, surgery is used when conservative treatment/management is not effective. Sometimes surgery is done on an outpatient basis - the patient goes home after the procedure.
This will ultimately occlude the blood supply to the superior hemorrhoidal artery above the hemorrhoidal tissue, resulting in the retraction of prolapsed mucosa back to its original anatomical position. A special circular stapler known as PPHO3 is used in the anastomosis and the whole maneuver will take around 30–45 minutes.
Endoscopic surgery causes much less pain and patients are mobile within hours after surgery. They are also allowed to resume all activities much earlier and can go back to work within 5-7 days. Another advantage is that both sides can be operated in the same sitting without any extra pain or stay. The cosmetic results are excellent.
At World Laparoscopy Hospital
Two types of surgeries are available for thyroid and parathyroid treatment:
- Endoscopic surgery
- Open surgery
At World Laparoscopy Hospital
The treatment options are:
- Open appendectomy: The appendix is removed through an incision in the lower right abdomen.
- Laparoscopic appendectomy: The appendix is removed with instruments placed into small abdominal incisions.
At World Laparoscopy Hospital these are the options for piles treatment:
Haemorrhoidectomy (open surgery of the piles): the excess tissue that is causing the bleeding is surgically removed. This can be done in various ways. It may involve a combination of a local anesthetic and sedation, a spinal anesthetic, or a general anesthetic. This type of surgery is effective in completely removing piles, but is associated with pain for few days.
Minimally Invasive Procedure for Hemorrhoids (MIPH): This technique uses stapler for performing the surgery. It is relatively painless and be done as a day care surgery
- Fibroids—Fibroids are growths that form inside the wall of the uterus or outside the uterus. Most fibroids are benign (not cancer), but a very small number are malignant (cancer). Fibroids can cause pain or heavy bleeding. Laparoscopy sometimes can be used to remove them.
- Ovarian cyst—Some women have cysts that develop on the ovaries. The cysts often go away without treatment. But if they do not, your ob-gyn may suggest that they are removed with laparoscopy.
- Ectopic pregnancy—Laparoscopy may be done to remove an ectopic pregnancy.
- Pelvic floor disorders—Laparoscopic surgery can be used to treat urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
- Endometriosis—If you have signs and symptoms of endometriosis and medications have not helped, a laparoscopy may be recommended. The laparoscope is used to see inside your pelvis. If endometriosis tissue is found, it often can be removed during the same procedure.
- Cancer—Some types of cancer can be removed using laparoscopy.
If you had outpatient laparoscopic surgery, you will need to stay in the recovery room until you can stand up without help and empty your bladder. You must have someone drive you home. You usually can go home the same day. More complex laparoscopic surgical procedures, such as laparoscopic hysterectomy, may require an overnight stay in the hospital.
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery used to treat urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate.
A combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The prostate surrounds the urethra. Using the resectoscope, your doctor trims away excess prostate tissue that's blocking urine flow.
TURP is generally considered an option for men with moderate to severe urinary problems that haven't responded to medication. Traditionally, TURP has been considered the most effective treatment for an enlarged prostate.
A Hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity protrude out of the membrane in which they are normally contained through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue. Hernias by themselves may or may not produce symptoms as they are asymptomatic and can cause slight to severe pain.
There are various types of hernia namely- Inguinal (direct & indirect), Femoral, umbilical and ventral (Incisional, periumbilical and epigastric)
The term laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy can refer to any of the following three techniques:
- Totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair.
- Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair.
- Intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) repair.
It is a minimally invasive surgical technique that is used for diagnosing and treating problems in the chest. In this procedure, a tiny thoracoscope (camera) is inserted in the chest through the small incisions in the chest wall. The camera enables in transmitting the images of your chest on the monitor to allow the surgeon to perform the procedure effectively.
Surgery is done to retract the prolapse, repair the torn ligaments and fascia. A synthetic mesh may be used to give additional support.
Men are more prone to inguinal hernias than women because of basic differences in anatomy. The area where hernias occur most often has a very different function in men than in women.
