Rare Syndromes

I just had my gall bladder removed.  The dr. said that in the surgery he found conditions he had not actually see before.  My gall bladder had not work for more that a year and was so severly infected that the liver, gall bladder and upper intestines had adhered together because of scar tissue.  He said he had to "peel" my gall bladder off my liver& intestines.  He mentioned 2 conditions that I have not been able to find any information about - one was "Miritzies Syndrome".  I think it has something to do with the thickening of the organ from scar tissue, the other was "Hydrops".  Can you tell me anything about any of these conditions.  I am 40 years old and am feeling much better since the surgery.  I am just curious
