The gallbladder is a body organ that stores around 50 ml of bile that functions to digest fat in the body. When you consume high-fat food, the bile works so hard to digest it. Also, it can lead to the presence of gallstones due to the hardened bile. When someone is suffering from severe gallstones, they need a surgery called cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal).
