The gallbladder is an important organ in the human body, as it is situated below liver and used as a storehouse for bile. Bile is produced in liver, enters the gall bladder, and, finally, the small intestine. Bile helps digest fat and constitutes primarily of water and acid. When there is any change in the constitution of bile, it can lead to stones in gallbladder.
This issue is usually common for obese women older than 40, but, nowadays, this condition has even been seen in small children. This ailment becomes apparent when the gall bladder begins swelling and you feel an extreme pain in your right hand and the side of your stomach. The pain usually persists for 2 hours or more before subsiding. This situation is called acute colisistasis. In the early stages, most people take painkillers and antacids, but over time the pain increases and they are forced to see a doctor.
In certain cases, the pain is not that extreme, but sufferers develop sour hiccups and digestion issues. These symptoms are usually seen in people who eat fried and spicy foods on a regular basis.
In other cases, stones in the gallbladder hinder the passage of bile flow and slowly leads to the development of cancer. This situation is not easily detected, but usually becomes apparent when the patient goes for sonography or x-rays.
The only solution is to operate on the gallbladder and remove the stones. In modern times, this can be done through laser surgery and the patient can recover. However, blood will be required during the operation, so arrange for the blood to be available before the operation begins.
