gallbladder pain

The gallbladder a small pouch that sits under the liver and its primary function is to store bile produced by the liver to help the body break down and digest the fats you eat. When a problem occurs in the gallbladder it’s usually caused by a blockage in your bile ducts which are the tubes that let bile travel between your liver, gallbladder and small intestine.
