Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped pouch in the upper right part of your abdomen, which stores bile (a digestive fluid that helps to break down fatty food) produced by the liver. Bile is carried from your gallbladder to your intestine through a tube called the bile duct.
Gallstones (small, hard stones) can develop if the bile gets too concentrated. These can block the bile duct, resulting in abdominal pain, nausea and fever. If these symptoms persist, removal of the gallbladder is often required.
