What are Gallstones?

Gallstones are a type of stone that forms in the gallbladder or bile ducts (the pipe-like system within the liver). Gallstones can range in size from minuscule grains of sand to golf balls. Surprisingly, tiny stones are typically the most troublesome. These are stones that can pass through the gallbladder and become lodged.

Larger stones are more likely to remain silent in the gallbladder. It's crucial to remember that many people with gallstones aren't aware they have them because they aren't troubled by them. There is no need for gall bladder stone surgery in these situations.

Warning signs of Gallstones presence :

In certain cases, gallstones do not cause any symptoms at all. If a gallstone becomes stuck in a duct and becomes blocked, the following signs and symptoms may appear:

  • Upper right abdominal pain that appears out of nowhere and soon worsens.
  • Severe pain right in the center of the abdomen that appears all of a sudden and intensifies quickly.
  • Between the shoulders, your back tends to hurt.
  • Vomiting or nausea
Gallstone pain can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.

Diagnosis of Gallstones:

Asymptomatic gallstones are sometimes detected by chance during testing for another condition. When pain persists or occurs frequently, your health care practitioner may want to do a full medical history and physical examination, as well as the following gallstone diagnostic procedures:


A diagnostic procedure that creates a picture of the inside organs with the help of high-frequency sound waves


An X-ray of the gallbladder shows the movement of contrast fluid via the intestines.

Blood tests:

Infection, blockage, jaundice, and/or pancreatitis are all indicators to look for.

CT Scan:

A diagnostic imaging process that produces horizontal, or axial, images (commonly termed slices) of the body using a combination of X-rays and computer technologies.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP):

An endoscope (viewing tube) is inserted through the stomach and into the small intestine. The biliary system's ducts are visible because of a specific dye injected during the surgery.

The available treatment options to treat Gallstones:

There is no need for therapy for gallstones that do not cause symptoms in the majority of patients. It is up to your doctor to determine whether or not gallstone therapy is essential. Symptoms of gallstone difficulties, such as increasing pain in your upper right abdomen, may be flagged by your doctor. Gallbladder surgery is considered the best treatment for gallbladder stone. You can be treated if the signs and symptoms of gallstones reappear in the future.

FAQ Questions? Answered!

Overconsumption or underconsumption of certain bile salts can lead to gallstones. Researchers are still not sure as to why these bile alterations occur. Even without a gallbladder, your survival isn't affected and your body functions perfectly.
Gallstones can lead to acute cholecystitis, a more dangerous illness that occurs when the gallbladder is inflamed. This occurs when a stone obstructs the cystic duct, causing the gallbladder's pressure to rise. Antibiotics, hospitalization, and maybe Gall bladder stone surgery are also required.
Without a gallbladder, you can live a perfectly normal existence. Your liver will still produce enough bile to break down your food, but it will trickle continually into your digestive tract rather than being stored in the gallbladder.
Your doctor will clamp all of the bile ducts once the gallbladder is removed. Stitches, staples, or glue will be used to close the incisions. It can almost take about 1 to 2 hours to complete the process. The majority of patients return home the same day or the next day after surgery.
If gallstones aren't treated properly, they can lead to life-threatening illnesses like cholecystitis and sepsis. As a result, gallbladder cancer may become more likely in the future.
