Gallbladder Surgery

•    Q: What is the role of the gallbladder?
•    A: It is a pear shaped organ that stores bile produced by your liver and contracts or “squeezes” whenever you eat to help with digestion, mainly of fatty food.
     
•    Q: Is gallbladder essential for life?
•    A: No, your body can adapt completely to its absence without any consequences. Digestion of fat will be normal after a couple of weeks.
     
•    Q: How many incisions are needed for the laparoscopic cholecystectomy?
•    A: Only four 5 mm incisions and in very selected cases maybe even ONE! Click here to learn more about Single Port Access Surgery. Aqui seria link a un apartado que todavia no desarrollo y que iria junto con el resto de los procedimientos.
     
•    Q: Does laparoscopic cholecystectomy involves staple placement?
•    A: Yes, but those staples are titanium made, won’t make harm, and they can stay in your body forever.
     
•    Q: What is the expected hospital stay after surgery?
•    A: You will be discharged the next morning after surgery.
     
•    Q: Will these staples make alarms on the airports to activate?
•    A: No, never.
     
•    Q: Will I need to follow a special diet after surgery?
•    A: Yes, just for the first couple of weeks, and easy to follow, since it is just a low fat diet.
