Gallbladder surgery scares: are these scars permanent and will not vanish?
I have a large gall bladder stone and doctors told me that i have to remove it. I am afraid this may leave scars over my body especially that i have a vermiform appendix removal scar too. Please tell me if this will never be recovered or not? and how long does it take to vanish if it does? Thanks in advance.
Gall bladder stones can now be removed through key hole (also called laparoscopic or minimally invasive) surgery.
This option, though cannot be guaranteed for every case, is rapidly becoming the standard of care in many parts of the world, and usually leaves very little scar.
Is this something you could discuss with your surgeon in Oman?
The alternative would be to do an open surgery where you are guaranteed to have a reasonably large scar left behind.
Either way, if you compare the gallbladder surgery scar to the potential for rupture of your gallbladder or any other possible complications that could arise from not having the surgery, choosing to operate could be the wiser thing to do. What do you think?
Many people have found out that after an operation, they are able to dramatically reduce their post surgical scar by the use of Bio-Oil.
