What are gallstones? Small rock particles that form in the gallbladder are called gallstones. Gallstones are composed of a mixture of particles of solid formed groups cholesterol or bile. These stones grow as part of the process when the bile from the liver passes through the gallbladder. Most are tiny and often pass through the intestines and out of our bodies and never knew existed. Gallstones become a problem when trapped beneath a narrow outlet gallbladder or somewhere in the intestines. This results in pain. It can also cause a buildup of bile, infection or pancreatitis.
Why is this important? Your gallbladder is a small organ located beneath the liver. Its function is to collect and store bile that is made by the liver. Bile is a part of their digestive processes. It is thick, greenish-yellow, bitter liquid. Bile salts, electrolytes, cholesterol, bilirubin and other fats are naturally in the form of viscous bile.
Gallbladder surgery is very effective. Your gallbladder is considered a non-essential organ like the appendix. In some patients diarrhea and abdominal pain are aftereffects. These symptoms diminish over time with healing, dietary adjustments and sometimes medication.
