The gallbladder is a small pear shaped organ tucked behind the liver and it stores bile that's a fluid that helps your body to break down fat. Sometimes you can get little gallstones in your gallbladder that prevent the flow of bile and it causes stomach pain, sometimes even pain in the shoulder, and nausea and vomiting. If you're just having mild or occasional symptoms and it's not too bothersome to you then just kind of watch what you eat. You may notice that your symptoms get worse when you eat fatty foods. Avoid these things to avoid flare-ups. But if your symptoms start to get more severe then it's time to talk to the doctor. In some cases you need your gallbladder removed. In other cases they can just do something to get rid of the gallstones but not the gallbladder. You doctor can help you decide which treatment option is most appropriate for you. If you have any other questions for me feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and recommend us to your friends and family too.
