Gallstones

Gallstones and biliary disease can be a bit confusing, and there is a lot of overlap. Essentially, gallstones themselves are not problematic in the vast majority of cases, but can predispose the other problems with the biliary tree.   Gallstones

Is it possible to get gallstones after having the gallbladder removed?

In a lecture today, someone said today that a patient might still get gallstones even after they've had their gallbladder removed. I don't get how! Can someone explain please?

Low-fat diet and gallstones

Diet high in fat may reduce the risk of gallstones during rapid weight loss: http://www.nutrientsreview.com/lipids/fats.html Diet high in saturated fat may increase the risk of gallstones. Meals high in fat supposedly trigger pain in gallbladder stones disease, and many doctors recommend low-fat meals to prevent the pain http://www.patient.co.uk/health/gallstones-diet-sheet My questions: Do high-fat meals really trigger pain in gallbladder stone disease? Any experience with patients? Would you, as a doctor, recommend a low-fat diet to someone who already has gallstones?

pocus-ruq

One recently published prospective cross-sectional study (Villar et al., 2015) suggested simplifying the definition of a positive POCUS test to be presence of gallstones alone. With the simplified definition in evaluating for acute cholecystitis, POCUS had a sensitivity of 100% and NPV 100%. In other words, absence of gallstones alone rules out acute cholecystitis. [1]

There are multiple rounded irregular densities in the mid abdomen (turned out to be calcified mesenteric lymph nodes on CT). This patient likely has a small bowel obstruction secondary to gall stone.
