Some of the complications are as follows:
Pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea especially after eating a fatty meal. This is due to the fact that instead of the bile being released in small amounts by the gallbladder, the liver releases the contents at once.
Injury to the bile duct is the most serious complication of laparoscopy, which could lead to leakage, tears, and the development of strictures that can lead to liver damage. Patients are always advised to avoid heavy lifting for at least 2 weeks.
In about 6% of procedures, the surgeon misses some gallstones, or they spill and remain in the abdominal cavity. In a small percentage of these cases, the stones cause obstruction, abscesses, or fistulas that may require open surgery.
