Treatment of cholecystitis

The first and foremost treatment of the gall bladder includes symptomatic relief and management of inflammation of the gall bladder by adequate fluids (intravenous fluids, if needed) and analgesics. Once the inflammation has subsided, then the treatment should proceed further which includes surgical removal of the gall bladder. Nowadays, this is generally done laparoscopically and this procedure is called laparoscopic cholecystectomy where the surgery involves small incisions. Other methods like ‘lithotripsy’ can also be used to manage the underlying gall stones. But it is not very effective and recurrences are usually observed in such individuals. It is always better to get the gall bladder surgically removed, unless it is contraindicated.
