Can You Live Without a Gallbladder?

Yes you can because it is not an essential part of your body. Without a gallbladder you will still be able to digest your food. The purpose of the gallbladder is to concentrate and store bile. The gallbladder and the liver share a common duct so after the gallbladder is removed, the bile still has a place to go.
