What is hepaticojejunostomy surgery & how much time in recovery ?

Hepaticojejunostomy is a surgical procedure that involves creating a new connection between the bile ducts and the small intestine (jejunum). This procedure is usually performed to treat a blockage or injury in the bile ducts, which can lead to a buildup of bile and cause liver damage.

During the surgery, the surgeon will create a small incision in the abdomen and then cut the small intestine to create an opening. The bile ducts will then be attached to this opening in the small intestine. The surgery can be performed using traditional open surgery or laparoscopic techniques.

The recovery time after a hepaticojejunostomy surgery can vary depending on various factors such as the patient’s overall health, the extent of the surgery, and any complications that may arise. Generally, the patient will need to stay in the hospital for several days after the surgery, during which time they will receive pain management and care from medical professionals.

After leaving the hospital, patients should expect to rest for a few weeks and avoid any strenuous activities that may put pressure on the abdomen. They may also need to follow a special diet to aid in the healing process. It is essential to follow the doctor’s instructions closely to ensure a successful recovery. It may take several weeks to several months for the patient to fully recover and return to their regular activities.

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours. Recovery time can vary depending on the patient’s overall health and the extent of the surgery. Generally, patients can expect to spend several days in the hospital following the procedure, during which time they will be monitored for any complications.

Once discharged from the hospital, patients may need to continue taking medications and follow a restricted diet for several weeks while they recover. It may take several weeks or even months for a patient to fully recover from the surgery and return to their normal activities. It is important for patients to follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.
