Inflammation of the gallbladder is known as cholecystitis while the formation of gallstones within the gallbladder is known as cholelithiasis. The gallbladder, a small pear-shaped organ situated on the right side of the abdomen secretes bile that's released into the small intestine. If one develops gallstones (cholelithiasis), they may block the tube leading out of the gallbladder. The resultant bile buildup causes inflammation or cholecystitis. Other causes of this condition include tumors and problems with the bile duct.
Colecystitis may lead to serious and in cases, even life-threatening complications if left untreated. Apart from severe pain and discomfort, consequences may include a ruptured gallbladder. Treating cholecystitis may involve a course of antibiotics followed by gallbladder removal.
Signs and symptoms of cholecystitis with cholelithiasis often occur after a heavy meal. These may include:
• Severe pain on the right side of the upper abdomen
• Radiating pain from the right shoulder or back
• Abdominal tenderness particularly when touched
• Nausea, vomiting, fever
At the onset of any such symptoms, medical attention should be sought immediately.
