Symptoms of gallbladder issues

Gallbladder issues can be very serious, and it's important to know what symptoms to look out for. A few of the most common include:

Pain

Pain has been listed as the single most common symptom, often your first indicator that anything is wrong. You'll typically feel it in the upper-right part of your abdomen. Pain registers in different levels based on the issue; sometimes it's mild, sometimes it's severe, and it may be infrequent or happen with regularity.

Jaundice

Jaundice makes your skin appear slightly yellow. This often happens with bile duct issues. This is one of the most famous symptoms simply because it is odd and less common than simple issues, such as frequent pain.

Stomach Issues

A gallbladder problem can lead to numerous stomach issues, such as nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, and gas. You could have just one of these issues or all of them at the same time

Fever

If you have a fever or feel chills, it could mean you have a gallbladder infection. This can be life-threatening as it spreads throughout the body. Of course, not all fevers are a sign of infection, but they're especially noteworthy in connection with other symptoms.

Stool Issues

Gallbladder problems can lead to chronic diarrhea that could last for three months or more, stools that are lighter in color, or urine that is too dark.

If you end up having gallbladder surgery, your health issues could get even worse when surgical mistakes are made, or the symptoms that you're feeling could be directly related to a serious mistake. When this happens, you need to know what rights you may have to compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
