Precautions After a Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery

 

Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) removes the gallbladder and gallstones through several small cuts (incisions) in the abdomen. The surgeon inflates patient’s abdomen with air or carbon dioxide in order to see clearly.

Sometimes patients are nauseated after waking from the anesthesia. This sensation usually passes. If it does not, medication can be given to relieve it.

Postoperative pain can usually be controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers. Some patients may need a stronger, prescription analgesic.

The incisions are covered by small adhesive bandages that can be removed in about 5 days and the stitches dissolve over time. The area must be kept dry until the wound begins to heal and sponge baths are recommended for the first day or two.

 

Recovery from the laparoscopic procedure is quicker than from the open procedure. As the anesthesia wears off, and once vital signs stabilize, the nurse offers the patient ice chips. If ice is tolerated, water and other clear liquids are offered. Once liquids are tolerated, patients can eat a light meal and the IV is removed.

 

How is it different from an open surgery?

Recovery from open surgery is not as rapid. Patients experience pain at the incision site and a narcotic pain reliever is usually required for the first day or two. The patient may not be able to eat until the morning after surgery. The intravenous is left in until food and fluids are taken and tolerated.

 

Patients are usually able to get out of bed by the next morning. It is important to get up and walk as soon as possible to help blood circulation return to normal and to avoid complications such as blood clots. The hospital stay generally lasts 3 to 7 days and it usually takes about 3 weeks to fully recover. This procedure leaves a large abdominal scar, which may fade over time…

 

Diet instructions you need to know after the surgery

When you consider about your diet after the gallbladder surgery. No need to follow a special diet after having the surgery, as the gallbladder isn’t essential for digestion. You can usually start eating normally a few hours after your operation, although you’ll probably prefer to eat small meals to start with.

 

You may have been advised to follow a low-fat diet for several weeks before surgery, but this doesn’t need to be continued afterward. Instead, you should aim to have a generally healthy, balanced diet (including some fats).

 

Conclusion

 

Even Though cholecystectomies are safe, but complications can develop. The main disadvantage of laparoscopic surgery has increased the risk of injury to the bile duct, which connects the gallbladder and the liver. This rarest complication can cause serious liver damage.

If you experience side effects from the surgery – including indigestion, bloating, flatulence or diarrhea – it may help to make some small adjustments to your diet such as

 

  • Avoid drinks containing caffeine – such as coffee and tea,
  • Avoid foods that make the problems worse – such as spicy or fatty foods,
  • Gradually increase your intake of fibre – good sources of fibre include fresh fruits and vegetables, wholegrain rice, whole-wheat pasta and bread, seeds, nuts, and oats.

Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery(Appendectomy)

 

Appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix. Laparoscopic Appendectomy or Appendix Removal Surgeryis routinely done at almost all the top hospitals in Mumbai, India. It involves making tiny incisions in the abdomen and removing appendix through it. Laparoscopic Surgeons are extensively trained to do surgeries using laparoscope (a thin telescope)

Dr Ashish Chaudhary is laparoscopic & Colorectal Surgeon at GB Multicare Hospital with more than 17 years’ experience in Laparoscopic Surgery.

If appendix becomes infected it must be surgically removed (emergency appendicectomy or appendectomy) before it perforates (burst) and spreads the infection to entire abdomen (peritonitis). Burst Appendix can be dangerous and may lead to death.

 

Symptoms & Diagnosis of Appendicitis

What Are the Symptoms of Appendicitis?

2

Following are usual symptoms of appendicitis-Pain in right lower Abdomen- may worsen during walking or coughing, fever usually occur within several hours, loss of appetite, nausea vomiting, constipation chills/shaking – Appendicitis is a surgical emergency.

 

How is Appendicitis Diagnosed?

It is essentially a clinical diagnosis. There is no laboratory test or radiological test yet that is 100% diagnostic. USG and CT scan done by a good radiologist has an accuracy of greater than 90% but it may be negative. Diagnostic laparoscopy has a sensitivity and specificity of 100%.

 

Treatment Options Available for Appendicitis

The ideal treatment is surgical removal. Mild appendicitis may sometimes be cured with medicine(antibiotic), but removal of appendix at later date to prevent recurrence may be done which is called interval appendectomy. More serious cases are treated with emergency surgery to remove appendix. Surgeons use either an open or laparoscopic appendectomy surgery to remove appendix.

 

What is Laparoscopic Appendectomy?

In general anaesthesia a small incision is made at the naval and thin tube carrying the video camera is inserted .The surgeon inflates the abdomen with CO2 to provide room for surgery to be performed .Next two instruments are inserted. The instruments clears fat around the appendix, controls bleeding and ligate the base of appendix. They help to cut the appendix and it is then removed from tiny naval incision.

 

Preparation & Recovery for Laparoscopic Appendectomy

 

Preparation for Laparoscopic appendix surgery

One should not eat or drink within 6-8 hrs of surgery.

Patient can be admitted on day of surgery in the morning or one day in advance. Anaesthesia fitness is given by anaesthetist. Laparoscopic appendectomy operation is typically over in about 45 minutes to an hour, depending upon the operative findings.

Recovery after Laparoscopic Appendectomy,

Once the operation is over patient is kept in the recovery room where a strict watch is kept.

Post appendicectomy you patient will be kept fasting for a minimum period of 6 hours. The period of fasting may be increased depending upon how severely inflamed the appendix was. During the period of fasting IV antibiotics, pain killers and IV fluids are given. Once oral intake is resumed, depending upon bowel movements full normal diet can be resumed.

 

What are the Benefits of Laparoscopic Appendectomy?

 

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activity
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Minimally sized incision

But every Patient may not be fit to Undergo Laparoscopic Appendectomy.
Patient with cardiac disease and COPD are usually not good candidates for laparoscopic appendix surgery. Also patient on radiotherapy and immunocompromised patients cannot undergo this procedure.

Laparoscopic Fundoplication Surgery Mumbai

 

Medical Gastroenterologist may refer a patient of GERD or Heart Burn or hiatal hernia to a GI Surgeon for operation when medical treatment fails. With the advent of laparoscopic surgery in India, Laparoscopic Fundoplication Surgeryor Laparoscopic Anti-Reflux Surgery or Nissenfundoplication is best surgical option available for resistant GERD and large Hiatus hernias.

Dr Ashish Chaudhary is senior laparoscopic surgeon with 17 years’ experience in the field and fellowship in advance laparoscopic surgery. He is among those surgeons who perform Laparoscopic fundoplication surgery in Nagpur.

blog-1-3-1

What is Heart Burn or GERD ?

blog-1-3-2

The lower end of the esophagus (LES) works as a one-way valve allowing food to pass from the food pipe to the stomach but prevents the highly acidic stomach juices from going back into the food pipe (reflux).

When LES is weak or lax, it results in reflux of stomach acids causing stinging, burning sensation in the throat and chest, a condition known as GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease)Repeated reflux may lead to inflammation and damage to the esophagus. Some individuals are predisposed to LAX LES. Bad diet, smoking, alcohol, or certain body postures – all can lead to GERD.

 

What is Hiatus Hernia?

blog-1-3-3

The esophagus passes from the chest to the abdomen through an opening in the diaphragm (esophageal hiatus). This opening is usually just adequate for passage of the esophagus. However, patients that have a hiatal hernia have an enlarged opening. A hiatal or diaphragmatic, hernia occurs when the lower part of the esophagus and a portion of the stomach slide up through this esophageal hiatus into chest cavity.

blog-1-3-4

There are four different types of hiatal hernias and sliding hernia is the most common of the four representing more than eighty-percent of all hiatal hernias

Sliding hiatal hernias are those in which the junction of the esophagus and stomach, and part of the stomach protrude into the chest.

Para-esophageal hernias are hernias in which the gastro-esophageal junction stays where it belongs but part of the stomach passes or bulges into the chest beside the esophagus. The para- esophageal hernias themselves remain in the chest at all times and are not affected by swallows.

 

Symptoms & Diagnosis Of Hiatal Hernia

Symptoms:

  • Heartburn – 30-60 minutes after eating
  • Regurgitation – more with lying flat
  • Excessive belching
  • Aspiration – reflux of stomach contents into the airway
  • Chronic cough or Asthma – because of chronic aspiration
  • Mid Chest Pain/li>
  • Difficulty or pain with swallowing
  • Symptoms of obstruction

 

Diagnosis:

  • Hiatal hernias are diagnosed incidentally when an upper gastrointestinal x-ray or endoscopy is done.
  • Chest X-ray:
  • Esophagogram (Barium UGI)
  • Upper GI Endoscopy (EGD)
  • Esophageal Manometry

 

What are the Treatment Options for GERD ?

 

Mild GERD may be treated with modified diet, quitting smoking and drinking, regular exercises and better sleeping habits. Along with life style modifications, medicines such as antacids and anti reflux medicines can be prescribed.

When all that fails, then the next logical step is surgery.

Large para esophageal hernias causing symptoms requires surgery. Repair will help prevent complications such as bleeding, intestinal disruption, strangulation.

Treatment of sliding hiatal hernias is usually the same as for the GERD.

Surgical Procedure for GERD /hiatal hernia

 

Laparoscopic Fundoplication or laparoscopic anti reflux surgery is best surgical option available for large hiatal hernia and for failed medical treatment of GERD.

blog-1-3-5

The stomach and lower esophagus are placed back into the abdominal cavity. Hernia defects greater than 5 cm. are buttressed with mesh which significantly decreases the recurrence rate.

The opening in the diaphragm (hiatus) is tightened and the stomach is stitched in position to prevent reflux.

The upper part of the stomach (fundus) may be wrapped around the lower end of esophagus (Fundoplication) to prevent reflux.

 

Advantage of Laparoscopic Fundoplication surgery

 

Open surgery involves a large incision, a week or more of hospital stay and pain. However, with advanced laparoscopy the same procedure can be done as a day-care surgery with only small holes over the stomach, no pain and it is much safer than the open surgery having a faster recovery to normal activities.

Due to obesity or pre-existing conditions, the laparoscopic method may not be suitable for few patients. During the surgery, the Surgeon may take a decision to do the “open procedure,” strictly based on the safety of the patient.

 

Preparation for Laparoscopic Anti -Reflux Surgery

 

Blood Work, Medical Evaluation, Chest X-Ray and an ECG.

  • Drink clear liquids, for 2-3 days prior to surgery.
  • After midnight the night before the operation, you should not eat or drink anything
  • Drugs such as aspirin, blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications and Vitamin E are to be stopped a week prior to surgery.
  • Quit smoking

 

Recovery After Laparoscopic Fundoplication Surgery

 

  • Patients are started on clear liquids the next morning and are discharged in the afternoon.
  • Soft food is given for 4-6 weeks after surgery.
  • Patients are encouraged for early ambulation and light activity after surgery.
  • Post-operative pain is generally mild for which pain medication may be given.
  • Anti-reflux medication is usually not required after surgery.

Digital rectal examination is important step in the evaluation anal fistula.

Sigmoidoscopy may be required to locate the internal opening and to check for any other issue.

Sometimes colonoscopy may be done for patients with recurrent anal fistula with symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.

Endoanal ultrasonographyis useful in the total assessment of anal fistula.

Fistulography and magnetic resonance imaging may be useful for complex recurrent anal fistula.

 

LASER treatment of Anal Fistula (FiLaC)

 

Our Colorectal surgeon is performing new fistula treatment using diode Laser – Fistula LASER Closure (FiLaC) in Mumbai. It is safe, effective minimally invasive and sphincter saving procedure. It usually takes approximately 15 min time.

 

Steps:

 

      • Hydrogen peroxide or mythelene blue is injected from external opening to identify Internal opening of fistula.
      • Fistula tract is debrided with curate.
      • Through guide wire a plastic hollow 14F catheter is inserted in tract.
      • Radial-emitting disposable laser fibre is inserted into the catheter with its tip emerging at the internal opening.
      • Diaode LASER is used, fibre delivers laser energy homogenously and the tract is closed. Slowly it is withdrawn

 

Advantage

 

      • It doesn’t affect continence function.
      • Less hospital stay as compared to endorectal advancement flap or LIFT.

 

Video Assisted Anal Fistula Treatment (VAAFT)

blog-1-5-2

Video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT) is a new minimally invasive and sphincter-saving endoscopic treatment for complex fistulas.

Fistula tract and internal fistula is localized using fistuloscope (endoscope) inserted through external opening and under direct vision fistula tract is destroyed from inside and closure of the internal opening is done by stapling or suturing or cutaneous-mucosal flap.

 

Advantage of VAAFT

 

        • Less pain, early recovery
        • Very Low risk of incontinence (sphincter injury)

 

LIFT (ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract)
