Nausea and Vomiting
Since the bile duct is blocked during a gallbladder attack, the body is unable to break down fats. This could trigger nausea and vomiting. The pain of the attack could exacerbate these symptoms. Nausea and vomiting are more likely to occur during the early stages of a gallbladder attack. Patients should seek emergency care if these symptoms are present. Doctors need to know when the symptoms began. They will also ask the patient how long the symptoms have lasted. Patients may want to let the medical team know how many episodes of vomiting they have had, and it is beneficial for staff to know if the patient has been able to keep liquids down. At the hospital, patients may be given injections to help reduce nausea. Symptoms usually subside once the gallbladder attack has passed.
