In brief: Gallbladder attacks
The gallbladder concentrates bile from the liver and mixes it with food to digest fats in your diet.
When the gallbladder is sick, you may feel right sided abdominal and/or back pain with meals, and have tenderness in the right upper abdomen. Worst case is obstruction of the bile ducts when you may become jaundiced (yellow color), have dark urine, tan stools and/or the pancreas may inflame.
