Gallbladder Diseases

• Acute/Chronic Cholecystitis

    Ongoing inflammation with recurrent episodes of biliary colic or pain is referred to as chronic cholecystitis, about 66% of patients with gallstones present these repeated attacks which lead to scarring and alteration of the normal function of the gallbladder.

    Symptoms:
  • Abdominal Pain*
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Belching
  • Fever (not always present)

  • *The attack of abdominal pain, in these case, usually last for more than 1 hour but subsides by 24 hours; if pain persists longer than 1 day, acute cholecystitis is likely the underlying cause.
