Gangrene in the Gallbladder

My Dad was diagnosed with gangrene in the Gallbladder. The gallbladder was not removed by drainage tubes and a bag has been inserted. It is expected that this wil remain the case for at least 3 mnths. Can anyone tell me of a similar experience and treatment options.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am not medically qualified in Medicine or in Homeopathy but with the sparse knowledge that I have about surgery which I have witnessed on many occasions by not for a Gall Bladder surgery, I feel that if you are certain that your dad's Gall Bladder is gangrenous, it is imperative that it is excised immediately as major damage to the organs can result.

You are advised to consult another surgeon for his opinion on this matter which requires immediate attention.

Thanks for your reply. The DR had performed keyhole surgery but did not want to perform open surgery for some reason. I don't understand why not as it is not possible for dead tissue to 'get better'.

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I am glad that your dad consulted a surgeon and had his Gall Bladder removed.

Keyhole surgery is by far the surgery of choice for Gall Bladder as it is far less invasive to the standard method which leaves a scar about 5-6 inches and can also cause major distress.
