    The following are some symptoms of gallbladder ailments for which you might need to get cholecystectomy:

    • Bloating An affected gallbladder can lead to improper functioning of the bile and blockages, which leads to bloating.

    • Nausea Feeling nauseated during eating or at times throughout the day can also be an indicator of gallbladder ailments.

    • Vomiting Vomiting after a normal meal can indicate improper functioning of the gallbladder.

    • Pain in the area Sharp pain felt in the upper right portion of the abdomen can be caused by gallbladder ailments. The pain can also radiate to the middle of the abdomen, right shoulders or back

    • Jaundice Jaundice is a disease that is generally caused by bile duct blockage by problems in the gallbladder.

  • Causes of Gallbladder ailments that require cholecystectomy

    There can be several causes of gallbladder ailments that might require cholecystectomy. Some of the major ones are:

    • Gallbladder stones Substances in the bile fluid crystallise and result in the formation of stones. Generally harmless, the accumulation of these stones can result in nausea, inflammation, pain and lead to infections.

    • Obstruction in the Bile duct This may occur due to the formation of gallbladder stones in the bile duct. It affects the body similarly and leads to infections, fever and nausea.

    • Pancreatitis The pancreas gets inflamed due to the formation of gallbladder stones blocking the pancreatic duct.

A medical term for gallbladder surgery is cholecystectomy. This procedure involves the removal of the gallbladder from the body. 

The gallbladder is an organ in the body that is shaped like a pear and responsible for storing bile juice(the fluid that helps us digest food). The bile is produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. The gallbladder is not always efficient as an organ for some people and leads to the blockage of the ducts through which it delivers the bile during digestion. There can also be developments of deposits in the gallbladder that form stones. In such cases, it is necessary to remove the gallbladder with a surgical procedure. 

The gallbladder is not a necessary organ and removing it does not affect the body except for the fact that bile does not get stored anymore and is released by the liver directly. It is important to get a cholecystectomy done if there are stones in the gallbladder or it becomes infected, since not treating it can have adverse effects on your health. People who are over the age of 40 are more likely to be affected by gallbladder ailments.
