Dr. My wife is 25 year old, wieghing 86KG, height 5.3 living in Qatar (Middle East); she's having pain on her back side (right), right side below rib and front side close to liver, we went to Doctor and did ultrasound scan and found 5.6mm size polyp;
Could you help by answering some worried questions
a) Is there a chance for cancer?
b) Is there oral medicine available for polyp?
c) What are the non-surgical possibilities to remove polyp?
d) If removing, does the doctor remove gallbladder complete?
e) Can we live gallbladder removed?
f) What are the life style changes to be followed after removing gallbladder?
Any structural abnormalities in the gall bladder will need surgical correction. If it's a polyp and is causing symptoms, doctors may plan for the removal of the gall bladder. However gall bladder removal can cause fatty food intolerance. So, after surgery avoid all food high in fat and cholesterol.
