While bile can be incredibly dangerous to your body when it’s outside of the gallbladder, when it’s inside of it, its job is to help aid in digestion. Sometimes the bile can also contain crystallized fragments which form gallstones. Now when these fragments turn into gallstones, they can cause some serious issues inside of your body. The can be as small as a grain of sand or they can bigger – up to the size of a golf ball. These fragments can block up the ducts inside the gallbladder or even worse, if you can imagine it, they can pass out of the gallbladder and into the duct for the bile which can lead to a major infection which can cause inflammation to your pancreas.
