Symptoms: Gallstones can irritate the lining of the gallbladder & can partially block the emptying of bile from the gallbladder after eating. The body translates that as a pressure or a full uncomfortable feeling. That can feel like a full, bloated, gassy feeling especially worse after larger meals or eating fatty greasy foods.
