I. INTRODUCTION
This is a case study of a 64 year old male client who were rushed at Lubao Clinic at Lubao, Pampanga complaining of severe pain on the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. After performing abdominal ultrasound, the result shows that he has Cholecystolithiasis/cystitis and choledocholelithiasis with secondary biliary ectacia. He was then diagnosed with cholecystocholedocholithiasis and was referred by Dr. G to Dr. PB of Bulacan Medical Center. He was admitted at Bulacan Medical Center last August 27, 2010 at 12:32 p.m. and was scheduled for cholecystectomy with billiary exploration. Cholecystocholedocholithiasis is presence of gallstone in both gallbladder and common bile duct, in turn leading to bile obstruction and gallbladder irritation. Gallstones are crystalline bodies formed within the body by accretion (increase by natural growth) or concretion (formation of stone-like substance) of normal or abnormal bile components, it can occur anywhere within the biliary tree, including the gallbladder and common bile duct. The bile is a fluid produced by the liver that aids in digestion of lipids and neutralizing of partly digested foods, it is stored in the gallbladder and upon eating it is discharged to the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine) by passing to a duct called common bile duct. The gallbladder is an organ which aids in the digestive process. Its function is to store and concentrate bile. The common bile duct is a tube-like structure that is formed by the union of the common hepatic duct and the cystic duct. Its primary function is conduction of concentrated bile from the gallbladder to the duodenum. Cholecystectomy is a surgical removal of gallbladder. Fortunately, the gallbladder is an organ that people can live without. Despite of the importance of gallbladder in the digestion of fat, many people are unaware of it. That is why they often neglect to take care of their gallbladder. And biliary exploration is done to search for any gallstone present in the biliary tree. Cholecystocholedocholithiasis can affect both men and women but it is more prevalent in women at the age of 40 years old. People who have a history of gallstones are at increased risk for having this kind of disease. In the international level, gallstones are prevalence among people of Scandinavian descent, Pima Indians, and Hispanic populations, whereas gallstones are less common among individuals from sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. It affected 20.5 million people (19881994) with a mortality record of 1,077 deaths in 2002. Hospitalizations total up to 636,000 in the same year and over 500,000 have undergone cholecystectomies. In the Philippines alone, an extrapolated prevalence of 5,073,040 people are affected by the disease last 2007. (http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/statistics)

No unanimous consensus has been achieved regarding the ideal management of cholecystocholedocholithiasis. The treatment of gallbladder and common bile duct stones may be achieved currently according to a two-step-protocol (endoscopic sphincterotomy associated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy) or by a one-step laparoscopic procedure, including exploration of the common bile duct and cholecystectomy. Endoscopic sphincterotomy is reported to have considerable morbidity/mortality and common bile duct stone recurrence rates, whereas laparoscopic common bile duct clearance is a demanding procedure, which to date has not spread beyond specialized environments. (http://pubget.com/paper/19466493#)

Significance of the study We, the student nurses have chosen this case as we see it fit for the peri-operative concept as the patient has had undergone cholecystectomy with billiary exploration and cholechoduodenostomy. Moreover, despite the Cholecystocholedocholithiasis low incidence, we would like to give credit and to know more of the nature and function of the gallbladder. Much often this small organ is not given importance. Thus we are in a pursuit for knowledge to be able to impart it to others. Furthermore, this case is quite interesting since it does not always affect only females and elderly. It can affect everyone. It can be alarming since many people are confused and unaware of the symptoms presented. As teen-agers living in a fast-phased world and governed by schedules, we too are predisposed to lifestyle modification especially diet and food

preferences which can contribute to the disease. With this study, we hope to apply our learning in taking care not only of our patients but also of ourselves. As nursing students and future nurses, we would want to understand and appreciate more on what is happening to a patient with Cholecystocholedocholithiasis. Consequently, we are interested on what will be the necessary management that will be given. Through this, we are hoping that we will be able to find the right plan of care and sound interventions, not forgetting the patient s rights as a person. All in all, these will help us to become efficient nurses and better persons later on.

OBJECTIVES General Objective: Our first main goal is to gain knowledge through the completion of the case study and to impart this learning to Mr. BM and to those directly and indirectly involve with the completion of this case. In psychomotor aspect, our goal is to apply all what we have learned during the process of completing this case study to improve nursing care that will meet Mr. BM s need for the improvement of his general welfare. With the knowledge gained and through the application of this knowledge, another goal is that we will be able to empathize with the current situation of the patient and to gain some values like the value of patience and calmness which is important for us to have in order to become better nurses in the future.

Specific Objectives: y y Conduct a thorough physical assessment and to interpret the assessment in order to give the care the patient need. Research and understand the disease process of the patient s illness and also the possible causes and the symptoms the patient experienced that may suggest the current condition of the patient. y y y Integrate knowledge of nursing care in post Cholecystectomy with biliary exploration client to formulate a quality nursing care plan. Implement appropriate nursing intervention to satisfy the patient s needs. Use critical thinking to evaluate the effectiveness of the nursing intervention given in meeting the needs of the patient.

The pain often begins suddenly following a meal. The pain may radiate to the back. in turn leading to bile obstruction and gallbladder inflammation. is severe. also due to the irritation and inflammation of the gallbladder wall. due to absence of bile in the duodenum. in order not to experience that pain. Fever occurs in about one third of people with acute cholecystitis. People tend not to eat. lasts about one to three hours before fading gradually. The pain of biliary colic is caused by the functional spasm of the cystic duct when obstructed by stones. isn't helped by over-thecounter and isn't helped by passing wind. whereas pain in acute cholecystitis is caused by inflammation of the gallbladder wall. called biliary colic. This can cause an attack of abdominal pain.4° F (38° C) and may be accompanied by chills Loss of appetite The pain often begins suddenly following a large or rich meal. which: develops quickly.presence of gallstone in both gallbladder and common bile duct.

Less than 5-6% of the population under age 60 has stones. and/or retained suture material. biliary tree infection. Intraductal stones developing after cholecystectomy are invariable associated with bile stasis. Predisposing Factor Factor Advancing Age Rationale The incidence increases with age. It usually affects people with age of over 40 but it is more prevalent after 60 years of age. It is primarily due to decreased gallbladder motility of older person that may result in releasing of inadequate amount of bile to help digest fats. or parasitic infestation (Ascaris lumbricoides. or other helminthes).coli.
