One of the alleged Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® side effects is gallbladder disease or injury.

We can assist clients in pursuing claims for compensation and damages resulting from this side effect.
What Is Gallbladder Disease?
Gallbladder disease occurs when the normal function of the gallbladder — the secretion of bile to aid in digestion — is interrupted because of infection or inflammation of the gallbladder. A reported Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® side effect is gallbladder inflammation and complications that accompany inflammation or infection of the gallbladder. Severe cases may require the removal of the gallbladder (called Cholecystectomy). Recovery from this surgery can take significant amounts of time and require the patient to change her lifestyle. Our law firm helps people with Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® side effects file lawsuits to pursue claims for compensation and damages for gallbladder injury.
Symptoms of Gallbladder Disease
Patients with gallbladder disease or injury may experience symptoms such as these:
- Stomach discomfort or pain
- Chills and fever
- Abdominal pain and bloating
- Digestive problems
Gallbladder Surgery: Possible Complications
The major surgery — cholecystectomy — that was previously required to remove diseased gallbladders is now often performed as laparoscopic surgery using a very small incision and tiny surgical instruments. When everything goes well, this type of surgery, while temporarily disabling, allows the patient to recover within a month or so, much more quickly than after a traditional cholecystectomy. Subsequent surgery is sometimes required to correct problems caused by laparoscopic surgery, forcing patients to lose even more time from work and from regular activities. Compensation from a Yaz®, Yasmin® or Ocella® side effects lawsuit may provide for these losses.
