    Although the gallbladder can be removed through keyhole surgery they are not able to gain access through the ports made for bypass surgery, gallbladder removal used to be done at the same time when they used to do the bypass by the open method, but once they moved over to keyhole they stopped doing it at the same time.

    If you have discussed its removal with Mr Somers and he has agreed to remove it, you might find that you wake up with a few extra holes from the re location of a couple of the ports.

    He is the best one to ask though as procedures change all the time.



    I had my gallbladder removed at the same time and like Paul says, I had an open bypass. However, that was nearly five years ago. Best bet is to give the hospital a call or ask Shaw Somers himself at the appointment. You are in the very safest of hands believe me 😉

    Once again, thanks guys x


    Please don’t hesitate to ask absolutely anything as not too many of us are shy! There should always be someone who knows the answer or at least where to find it 🙂
