Your gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ located under your liver. It stores a fluid called a bile which is made by your liver. Bile helps your body digest fat. The gallbladder works with several ducts to carry bile out of your liver, store it in your gallbladder, take ducts to the small intestine and carries digestive enzymes out of your pancreas.
If you are having symptoms of pain in the upper right side or middle of the abdomen, abdominal fullness, clay-colored stool, fever, nausea and vomiting, or yellowing of skin and whites of eyes – we strongly recommend you make an appointment with a physician or call our office for a consultation.
When your gallbladder gets inflamed, infected or blocked, it is important to consult a surgeon to determine what is wrong with your gallbladder.
