Now, if any part of your body sits around and isn’t used, it starts to give you problems. Muscles waste away, brains forget where your keys are, and gall bladders sometimes develop gall stones.

Generally gall stones are literally stones—chunks of crystallized calcite and cholesterol deposits. These stones are sometimes small, like sand, sometimes large, up to the size of a golf ball. They can affect three major locations, all of which cause the patient very acute pain:
1. Obstruction of the cystic duct (biliary colic)
2. Infection or inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis)
3. Blockage of the biliary ducts leading to the duodenum (biliary obstruction)

So, like the appendix, the gall bladder used to be an important part of our physiology, but like the appendix, it has become unnecessary and sometimes must be removed. Hence: the cholecystectomy.
