Nursing Care Plan – Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder Removal)
Benefits and Risk
Gallbladder removal will relieve pain, treat infection, and in most cases stop gallstones from coming back. The risks of not having surgery
are the possibility of worsening symptoms, infection, or bursting of the gallbladder.
Possible complications include bleeding, bile duct injury, fever, liver injury, infection, numbness, raised scars, hernia at the incision, anesthesia complications, puncture of the intestine, and death.
