My pregnant wife has been recommended gall bladder removal surgery. When can we do it?
The best thing would be if she could get through the pregnancy and have it removed shortly after. This is if she is able to tolerate an adequate diet and through the pregnancy without having attacks of biliary colick, emesis, and/or cholecystitis. If this is not the case, the best time to operate is in the second trimester when most of the development is already completed and the baby and uterus are not so large as to be obstructive. READ MORE
Is diarrhea and pain after a surgery normal?
Some pain after surgery is expected and can be considered "normal." Diarrhea is not uncommon for a number of reasons after surgery, but is not the norm. Antibiotics, bowel preps, some poor absorption after surgery may all contribute to diarrhea, and although most are short-lived and self-limiting, the patient should be monitored very closely. Pain, in this day and age, can very easily be managed with a variety of modalities and medication, the last resort being narcotics. Sharon Zisman READ MORE
