Gallbladder is an organ that stores and releases bile which helps to digest fats. Gallstones are small stone-like particles that form inside the gallbladder or the bile duct and stop the regular functioning of the gallbladder. Generally, the stones look like particles, but sometimes the stones can take the size of a golf ball. At the first stage people having gallstones doesn't even realize any changes in their body. But if the condition is severe, the patients might go through severe pain and discomfort.
Depending on the symptoms, the doctor may prescribe certain medications. But if the condition is too severe, surgery is the only option left!
Mostly excessive cholesterol levels in your bile leads to gallstones. When the bile cannot dissolve the excessive cholesterol made by the liver, it leads to the formation of gallstones. Apart from this, sometimes the liver produces a chemical known as bilirubin. The gallbladder is unable to break bilirubin which further results into gallstones.
Untreated gallstones lead to extreme pain in the upper right side of the abdomen. Every time you eat any high-fat food, the pain increases since more pressure is created on the gallbladder. Some other discomfort may include:
If the gallstones are kept untreated, the gallstone starts moving. The movement of gallstones leads to conditions like acute cholecystitis, inflammation and infection in the bile duct and pancreatitis. Also one might experience jaundice for a prolonged period of time.
Hence, Gall bladder stones should be treated as early as possible!
