Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the accepted treatment for symptomatic cholelithiasis. This study examines the effect LC has on quality of life (QOL) and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and determines whether patients with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) gain the same benefit as those without. A total of 158 patients who underwent LC for symptomatic gallstones were recruited to this prospective observational study. IBS Manning scores were calculated and QOL was measured using the… CONTINUE READING
