What causes a gallbladder to go bad

I have had my gallbladder taken out a few months ago. But now all the pain and nausea has come back! I was told that I have a hiatal hernia. I have chest pains with some shortness of breathing. I don't know if my clips have falling off from my surgery or what. I wondering if there is someone out there that my be having the same problems and can tell me anything. My GI Doc can't see me for a while and I am in servre pain can anyone help!?!

Re: What causes a gallbladder to go bad

I don't know the answer to the question in the post except that those are hernia symptoms. as for the question in your subject line, which is a different one, it's generally either genetic or diet. Do you understand the function of the gb? it spews bile into the digestive track when fat is ingested to help digest it. When excessive bile is produced due to diet, stones form in the gb. They are spiney and therefore cause the pain when the gb constricts to spew the bile.

Hope this helps.
