Question:

I have gall stones & have had attacks. Had a U/S & g bladder not inflamed. Have opted for surgery & now want to know what kind of side affects I could have after the surgery.

Answer:

Risk of surgery include bleeding, bile leak and injury to the bile duct. After you recover you should be fine, however, some patients will experience transient bloating or loose bowel movements. This usually resolves over time.
