A person doing his/ her regular chores on a regular day suddenly experiences an abdominal pain after having his/ her meal and also feels nauseous. How do we know whats going on? There are more than a million people affected by Gallstone disease in the country. Let’s look into what Gallstone disease is.

What is a Gallbladder colic?

A Gallbladder colic, also known as the Biliary colic is a severe pain that is experienced in the upper abdomen towards the right side which is caused by cholecystitis (the inflammation of the gallbladder that occurs due to various reasons).

Why does it occur?

The most common cause of Biliary colic leading to Cholecystitis is a stone (formed in the Gallbladder) that might have got lodged in the tube (known as the cystic duct) connecting the Gallbladder to the intestine. When the stone blocks this tube, the normal flow of bile (fluid from the Gallbladder) is obstructed leading to Cholecystitis (inflammation) and further a colic.

Mainly colics occur due to some mechanical obstruction which might be due to some stone, tumor, or bacterial build up.

Less common cause of Cholecystitis is seen in critically ill patients who are suffering from other diseases such as HIV, Diabetes, etc. This is called Acalculous Cholecystitis.

Chronic Cholecystitis occur after many bouts of Acute Cholecystitis.
