Gallbladder removal and pathologist report?
recently I had my gallbladder removed the surgeon said it was very diseased, there was a large stone (inch or more) that the surgeon could feel in the gallbladder as well as several smaller stones. The surgeon refused to open it and sent it straight to the pathologist to be examined. Should I be worried or is this common practice?

When the surgeon suspects gallbladder disease, they often request a pathology report. The gallbladder is disected in a lab and a report is written on what is found. It's pretty much just FYI.

Now that your gallbladder is out, you should be fine. The problem would be if you still had it in you. Ask for a copy of the report when it comes back if you want to know the results.

It is normal for them to get a pathology report on anything they remove from the body. They will want to know what kind of stones were formed (Ca, protein, etc.)

Stones are stones. Better leave it to the Pathologist, otherwise the stones might fall out??!!?. Usual practice is you can ask for the stones to be given to you for keep's sake

common practice dont worry just follow post procedure instructions and warnings

Amuse Bouche
If you had your gall bladder removed laparoscopically, then the surgeon had good reason to leave the gall bladder intact. Once the gall bladder has been separated from its ducts and blood vessels, it needs to be removed through a very small incision in your abdomen. Extreme care needs to be taken to avoid spillage of bile or infected material into the inside of the abdominal cavity. Otherwise the patient may experience a greater degree of discomfort after surgery, and spilled bile, pus and blood can lead to adhesions (scar tissue that can cause the intestines to stick to itself and the inside of the abdominal lining).

Once outside the body, the removed gallbladder is usually sent intact for pathology. Cutting it open and looking inside in the operating room really serves very little purpose other than perhaps a wow factor for the medical student who was assisting.
