Cholecystitis- Gallbladder Inflammation, Symptoms, and Treatment

Cholecystitis treatment clinic in Pune

Cholecystitis is an inflammation of your gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a pear-shaped and small organ on the right side of the abdomen, beneath the liver. The gallbladder holds your digestive fluid that is released into the bile or the small intestine.

Gallstones block the tube that leads out of the gallbladder and causes cholecystitis. It even results in the buildup of bile that causes inflammation. Different reasons for cholecystitis consist of serious illness, tumors, and problems with your bile duct.

If you do not treat it, it can cause life-threatening and serious complications. This further causes the rupture of the gallbladder. Cholecystitis treatment includes removal of the gallbladder.

Symptoms of Cholecystitis:-

  • Bowel movements that are light-colored and loose
  • Yellow eyes and skin (jaundice)
  • Bloating
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea

Causes of Cholecystitis:-

  • Gallbladder sludge is a thick liquid that can build up in your organ. This can occur if you are pregnant or if you have quickly lost weight.
  • Tumors block the path of the bile. Growth in the liver or pancreas can prevent it from draining.
  • Your gallbladder does not have a good supply of blood. People who have diabetes can experience this problem.
  • Infection occurs in your gallbladder. Bacteria can damage your system that drains your bile and cause it to back up.

Treatment for Cholecystitis:-

If you are currently experiencing an acute case of cholecystitis, you need to visit the hospital. Keep the stomach empty so that your gallbladder can get proper rest. You will get fluid from a tube in your vein. You will receive pain medication as well as an antibiotic for an infection. The doctor can also try to dissolve if there are any gallstones.
