Gall bladder removal helps patients eliminate symptoms caused by gallstones or damages to the gall bladder. In many cases, positive results remain permanent. Initially, patients will not see major differences while resting in the hospital.

Initial Results

Generally, patients undergo laparoscopic surgery to remove the gall bladder. Different from open surgery, patients who undergo this form of surgical operation have the ability to leave the hospital as soon as the procedure concludes. If complications occur, the patient will generally remain in the hospital until positive results sustain.

Open gall bladder surgery occurs when the laparoscopic option causes complications or difficulties. This method will require that patients stay in the hospital for up to a week in order to fully recover. Once the patient returns home, the positive results will settle in so long as no further complications arise. Surgeons generally identify future problems and will schedule a checkup appointment to avoid such occurrences.  

Long Term Results

With the damaged or non functioning gall bladder completely removed, patients will no longer face the nausea, vomiting and stomach pain associated with gall bladder health issues.

Laparoscopic surgery allows for patients to return home after the surgery concludes. This allows individuals to rest and recover quickly. Patients will sustain these results so long as related complications do not occur.

Surgeons perform a number of precautionary steps before the surgery concludes which will help identify any other complications. By finding and then eliminating other stones near the gall bladder region, the medical team helps patients stay out of the hospital. These measures allow patients to live without the risk of related health problems.
