The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ located in the abdominal cavity just below the liver. The gallbladder has a vital function, namely to accommodate the bile. Bile plays a role in breaking down fat into simpler molecules to be easily absorbed by the small intestine. However, in some people, the compounds held by the gallbladder can harden and form gallstone.
The presence of gallstones can cause bothersome pain. Initial symptoms include bloating, nausea, excessive heartburn, and vomiting, leading to a nutritional imbalance in the body. The only way to overcome gallstone is gallbladder removal surgery. This operation is classified as a significant operation.
