The Purpose of the Gallbladder

The gallbladder is a small organ that is attached to the liver. Although you may not recognize its name as an important organ, it does have several key responsibilities in your body. When someone suffers from gallbladder disease or other problems, it can have serious repercussions on your overall health and well-being.

If you develop gallbladder disease or other problems, it can hinder your ability to digest and process fats. While it is difficult to predict when you may suffer from this problem, there are certain medications that can increase your risk of gallbladder complications. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are three such drugs. If you believe that you now suffer from gallbladder problems as a result of taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact a YAZ lawyer from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Types of Gallbladder Disease

The gallbladder takes bile from the liver to store it and allow it to concentrate. When you eat, the gallbladder releases the bile to help dissolve fats for digestion. If the gallbladder suffers from a disease, it can inhibit this functioning. Types of gallbladder disease include:

  • Cholecystitis
  • Gallstones
  • Chronic acalculous gallbladder disease
  • Tumors
  • Polyps
  • Abscesses

Treatment for Gallbladder Disease

These diseases can cause pain and vomiting, especially after meals. Thus, many people opt to have their gallbladders surgically removed. Although you can live without a gallbladder, you may then face other problems, such as bile stones in the liver ducts.

Gallstones and other gallbladder disorders can cause painful, debilitating symptoms. While this may occur with no external cause, oral contraceptives YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella can all put you at risk for gallbladder disease. If you have experienced gallbladder problems as a result of taking any of these medications, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
