The gallbladder holds the digestive juice called bile, which produced by the liver. Bile is used to digest dietary fats.
Symptoms of gall bladder conditions include pain in the abdomen and back, an increase in abdominal pain after eating a fatty meal, jaundice or fever and pain if the gallbladder or bile duct becomes infected.
Approximately 80 per cent of people with gallstone symptoms will require surgery. It may be necessary to remove your entire gallbladder (cholecystectomy), or only the stones from bile ducts may need removal.
