Bad gallbladder: Fever, vomiting, pain in belly, usually right sided, bloating, belching, worse after eating fatty (or other) foods, getting worse over time, several weeks to months, and family history are all symptoms of a bad gallbladder. Hydrate, avoid fatty foods while waiting for your doc visit, diagnostic testing, and/or surgery date. Take a friend with you to appointments. Be well.
