What is the role of gall bladder? What may happen if it stops functioning or is removed?
The role of gall bladder is that is stores and concentrates bile juice secreted by liver. The gall bladder releases the bile juice as and when required in the duodenum.
Gall bladder is thin muscular sac.
If the gall bladder stops functioning or is removed there won’t be any problem in the digestive system or digestive functioning.
If the gall bladder is removed or if it stops functioning, the bile juice will directly move to the small intestine. But as earlier it won’t concentrate but later the body learns to adjust with the changes.
