Digestive Issues Involving Your Gallbladder

Your gallbladder is one of the key components to proper digestion. This is because it holds the bile your liver produces that work to help break down the foods in your body. If your suffering from nausea, vomiting, or gallbladder pain after eating, it is important to call Dr. Michael Sutker, MD, PA right away. After giving you a consultation, he may find that cholecystectomy is necessary for you to be able to eat again comfortably. This general surgery procedure is the removal of your gallbladder. Once you have your gallbladder removed the bile created by your liver will be transferred directly to the intestine, which can give you the side effect of diarrhea after eating. Dr. Sutker will help you establish a new diet plan until you’ve reached full recovery in about three months. The surgery only takes a couple of hours and is generally scheduled as an outpatient treatment.

Appendicitis

Your appendix serves no well-defined purpose within your body. If it becomes inflamed or infected, it will need to get removed immediately. Once ruptured, it will be susceptible to an abscess forming or peritonitis. Not taking care of this right away can lead to sepsis and even death. Dr. Michael Sutker takes care of this general surgery procedure with ease and will only need to make three small incisions. Low fiber and high sugar diets have been suggested as risk factors for initially inflaming your appendix, but there is no definitive prevention.
