Poojya Guruji Sri Swami Atmanandaji had to get an emergency operation done and get his Gall Bladder removed on 25th May 2015. Dr Amitabh Goel, MS, an eminent Laproscopy Surgeon of Indore, did the Cholecystectomy operation very successfully at the Sahaj Hospital, South Tukoganj, Indore in the afternoon of 25th.
Earlier there was very severe & consistent spasmodic abdominal pain from last one week along with the problems of appetite, acidity & digestion. While the stones in the Gall Bladder were diagnosed 2-3 years back but they were silent and were not giving any trouble. As per the doctor, somewhere in the last week some stone got stuck in the bile duct and blocked the passage, thus choking the bladder. The bile kept on getting secreted and thus the bladder got distended & inflated. In the process an artery supplying blood to the bladder also got choked by the distension, and the bladder, denied of blood supply had started becoming black on one side, and a kind of gangrene set in. The GB was so bloated that if the operation was not done immediately it could have got bursted creating an emergency situation. With the blessings of God the decision of operation was very timely, and thanks to the kind & noble doctor who adjusted his busy schedule to take up this operation on priority basis.
Initially the decision was to get the operation done by laproscopy only, but as per the doctor, when he saw the condition of the bladder he had second thoughts about it and even thought of open surgery. However, he continued trying his best the laproscopic way and the operation got extended to around one hour, and the removal was finally successful. Normally he removes the gall bladder with 15-20 mins. The whole operation was recorded and later he showed us the amazing select video clips. Dr Goel puctured the gall bladder and sucked out the bile with suction pipes and then brought the condition to managable level.
There were many stones inside the bladder. One big one was of 1.13 cms wide, while there were dozens of smaller ones – like pellets. The real culprit were the smaller ones and not the bigger one which were blocking the wall as well as the duct. There were four small cuts and from next day itself he was allowed to walk around in the hospital. and by the next day night was discharged.
The stay at Sahaj Hospital was nice & comfortable. The facilities are good. The hospital specializes in endoscopic surgeries. It is the first hospital in this part of the country to have 3D Laproscopy equipments. The staff too is very caring, and food etc too was good.
