As you likely know, the gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ that rests beneath the liver. Its main purpose is to collect and concentrate a digestive liquid (bile) produced by the liver. Bile helps in digesting fats and is released from the gallbladder after eating certain foods. If you feel it, it’s likely because you’ve developed a certain condition such as gallstones or an infection causing the organ to create pain in the central or upper part of your abdomen, sometimes going to the back, and causing other symptoms like fever, nausea, etc. None of which will go away on their own. If you’re experiencing similar symptoms, please call an Epic Care surgery location today for a consult, second opinion or to schedule surgery.
