Risks and Complications

The same as any surgical procedure, complications could happen. A few potential complications of cholecystectomy can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Bile duct injure – the tube that transport bile from the gallbladder to the small intestine.

During the course of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, insertion of the instruments into the abdomen could cause an injury to the intestines or blood vessels.

There are added risks influenced by your specific medical condition. Be sure that you talk about any concerns with your doctor ahead of the surgery.
