My 65 year old father needs gallbladder surgery, we need a second opinion?
Please give me some advice about on my fathers treatment, he is now 65 years old.He has been suffering from asthma for a long years about 25-30 years back, along with this disease he also suffer a gall bladder stone ( as per report 30 gm weight) but some doctors are concerned it is not possible to recover the stone by surgery for the asthma patient. So, Sir we have not taken a concrete decision for further treatment for both of diseases. So please give us your valuable advice to recover the stone for further treatment.
asthma as such,has nothing to do with the gall stones. the doctors may be finding it risky to operate on him due to anesthesia and surgical risks involved,as this surgery is a major surgery.
if the gall bladder symptoms are bearable and not much,then you can postpone the surgery. but once gall stones are formed,its difficult to cure it only by medicines. surgery is the only option.
if the gall stone symptoms are more, he has to get operated with all the risks involved. endocopically done surgeries carry lesser risk.
GALL BLADDER STONES RARELY GET CURED BY CONSERVATIVE METHODS. THEY ALMOST ALWAYS REQUIRE SURGERY. THERE MAY BE SOME OTHER SPECIFIC REASON WHY DOCTORS MAY HAVE STATED SO.
SUCH SURGERIES INVOLVE HUGE RISK WITH LESS CHANCES OF FULL RECOVERY
