Sonogram shows fluid around gallbladder. What could that mean ?
Thanks for your question. I would say that fluid around the gall bladder is also known as pericholecystic fluid and normally seen in inflammation of gall bladder such as cholecystitis. Other problems such as biliary disorders, obstruction in pancreatic ducts can also be there. It is important to have complete evaluation done by gastro doctor for this thing at the earliest and some more specific tests. Best wishes.
