Hi jaimig! Yes you can live without a gallbladder. Your liver makes 'bile',and stores it in this organ. Bile works on fats that you've injested. Surgery on removal of theGB is done thru a laparoscope, and it requires only 3 small incisions. The surgeon usually re-routs in such a way that the bile will go directly from liver to the food you've eaten. The surgeon can give you more info and peace of mind. Please let me know how things go.
