There are not many things that can cause gallbladder symptoms. The most frequent reason why people start to experience these pains in their abdomens and frequent bouts of heartburn are caused because gallstones have formed in the gallbladder and the stones are being forced into the duct that takes the bile over to the small intestine. Bile is a liquid substance and it flows freely between the organs where it is stored and the small intestine where it is needed to help the body digest the fat content in the food you are eating. When these stones are forced through this opening they are hard and they do not flow so freely so they cause pain as they move through the duct. Sometimes they become large enough to block the common bile duct and this causes extreme pain and may cause an infection to set in. If you are having common symptoms of abdominal pain and it is suddenly accompanied by fever and chills seek immediate medical treatment from your health care provider.

Sometimes people who have gallstones, or other diseases that affect their gallbladder, will have to have the organ removed before they can get relief from their pain. Gallbladder surgery is a common procedure and is generally not considered to be a life threatening operation. You do, however, have to prepare for the procedure and for your recovery period following the procedure. The night before you are scheduled for your operation, you will need to have a bath. You will more than likely be told that you can have nothing to eat or drink after midnight, on the night prior to surgery. This is intended to keep you from becoming nauseated during surgery. You will also need to plan to have someone help you around your home for the two weeks following the procedure. You will be able to ambulate on your own, but you will be restricted from lifting anything that weighs more than five pounds. However all this comes with a risk that may send you back to the same hospital seeking answers. You see, up to fifty percent of all gallbladder surgery patients end up getting back the same gallbladder symptoms they originally went to surgery for. There are natural solutions that do not involve removing bodily organs. For more information go here .
