Symptoms of Bile Duct Injuries

Errors within surgery can have extreme long term consequences for people. Errors which result in Bile Duct injuries can mean that you will not recover from your surgery. Surgeons usually pick up on mistakes which occurred during the process, but sometimes even a surgeon can make a mistake. These mistakes should not be at your expense and you should be compensated.

If the bile duct is damaged and the injury is not detected at the time of the operation, bile will leak into the abdominal cavity causing an infection called Peritonitis. During this time the bowel will also cease to function normally as without bile it cannot digest food. This can lead to all kinds of problems including chronic pain and constipation.

The pancreas and liver may also be harmed during this process leading to conditions including, diabetes, liver failure and jaundice. Complex surgery is generally needed to repair any damage.

If the repair is performed at the time of the original operation but is not completed to an acceptable standard, problems may still develop and cause bile duct injuries. The exact symptoms will vary depending on the length of the negligent repair, but can involve Ischaemia, which is a lack of oxygen and blood to the bile duct. Bile leakage can also cause damage the pancreas and liver and also cause loss of bowel function.

Most bile duct injuries are found by the surgeon at the time of the surgery but if not, the first sign of a bile duct injury is when you fail to recover quickly after your surgery. You may also get some of these symptoms while trying to recover:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling of the abdomen
  • General discomfort which will not fade
  • Jaundice

Most patients recover from surgery within 10 days to 2 weeks so if you are still complaining of any of these symptoms, it may well be the case that there has been a complication with your surgery and you should seek further medical advice immediately. If you do not, you could be running the risk of picking up and infection or indeed sepsis.
