Inflammation of the gallbladder: Cholecystitis
Inflammation of the gallbladder can occur if there is a bacterial infection in the gallbladder or when the bile duct is blocked. There are two types of cystitis. E.g.
- Acute cholecystitis
- Chronic Cholecystitis
If gallstones usually get stuck in the bile duct and block the passage of bile, it can lead to gallbladder infection. The signs and symptoms of this disease suddenly appear.
Symptom & Sign:
- Pain– Sudden onset of severe pain in the upper abdomen, just below the right rib. The pain can go below the backbone or even to the right shoulder. The surface of the right abdomen, i.e., the place of pain, may become stiff.
- The stomach may be bloated, especially if you eat more fatty foods.
- Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, fever, etc.
The above symptoms are similar to the symptoms of much acute abdominal pain, such as appendicitis, severe inflammation of the pancreas, gastric ulcer. Of course, there is a way to distinguish. The name of that method is ‘Murphy’s Mark.’
If the right side of the chest is pressed with the finger of the left hand under the ribs of the right side of the chest, the patient is asked to take a deep breath, then the moment before the start of breathing, the patient will stop breathing. This is because the gallbladder descends from the bottom of the ribs to the surface of the abdomen during respiration. And at that time, the pressure of the fingers of the hand falls on the gallbladder.
So in severe pain, the patient stopped breathing. Through this test, the rage can be identified, and its treatment can be determined.
Chronic Inflammation of the Gallbladder: Chronic Cholecystitis–
Gallstones almost always cause chronic gallbladder inflammation. The signs and symptoms of this disease are very similar to acute inflammation. However, its severity is much lower, and the symptoms appear gradually. In the treatment of chronic inflammation of the gallbladder, the gallbladder is surgically removed. So the patient should be sent to the hospital or surgeon for proper treatment.
- The diseased person should be kept at full rest; nothing should be allowed to be eaten in the disease face.
- The patient has to be sent to the hospital.
