The appendix is a small pocket in the large intestine that serves no recorded purpose in the human body. However, it is only removed when it begins causing pain or other symptoms. The appendix is removed with a laparoscope through a small incision in the abdomen. The surgery is quite simple and common, and patients are generally able to go home the day after surgery. Why is it performed? If the appendix gets inflamed, a condition known as appendicitis, it can be extremely painful and if left untreated, the appendix can burst, releasing an infection in the body that can cause severe complications. Since the appendix does not perform any function, it is simply easier and more effective to remove the appendix, rather than treat it.
Typically, you would approach a general surgeon with a diagnosis in hand. The surgeon examines the details of the case and makes a surgical plan based on scans and imaging. Then a date is set for surgery and any preparation or pre-surgical conditions that need to be met, are explained to the patient.
All surgical procedures carry an inherent amount of risk with them. Some surgical procedures are safer than others, and modern operating rooms are well equipped to deal with even extreme complications. The surgical risk, however, is amplified by certain medical conditions.
Depending on the type of surgery, and the nature of the underlying condition that made the surgery necessary, a surgeon will prescribe a period of time where the patient must be under observation. Minimally invasive surgeries heal quite quickly and do not cause much discomfort, larger incisions, however, can take much longer to heal.
Surgical procedures are generally not recommended by doctors when there is a safer alternative available. However, sometimes surgery is necessary because it is the most effective treatment available.
Gallstones in the gallbladder can cause a disorder called Acute Cholecystitis, which implies gallbladder inflammation.
Jaundice can be caused by a clogged bile duct.
Acute Cholangitis can be caused by an inflamed bile duct.
Apply an ice pack to the surgical wound regularly.
Take the medicine on schedule.
Folloe the doctor's recommendations.
Short walks should be conducted regularly to improve blood circulation and reduce the risk of blood clots.
Heavy physical activity should be avoided for at least a week after surgery.

The surgery is suitable for the obese patient since the thickness of the abdominal wall is irrelevant while inserting the camera and equipment. In contrast, an open procedure results in a deeper and wider cut on the obese patient, resulting in greater bleeding, sutures, and pain. Children can also handle laparoscopic surgery extremely well. The device used to perform laparoscopy on children is thinner than that used on adults. Usually 5 mm, but occasionally 3 mm.
A person's chance of acquiring gallbladder stones can be influenced by several factors.
Some of them are,
If a patient's direct family member has a history of gallbladder stones, the odds of occurrence are increased.
Obesity, fast weight reduction in a short period, and diabetes mellitus are all major causes of gallbladder stones.
Medical conditions such as liver cirrhosis, blood illnesses such as sickle cell anemia or estrogen, leukemia and pregnancy are all risk factors for gallbladder stones.
The gallbladder secretes digestive fluids. Its main role is to store bile between meals. Following cholecystectomy, the liver's canal system and common bile duct expand in size to accept and store bile. As a result, there are no digestive issues or the need to adjust eating habits following gallstone surgery.
