User avatar Hello:
The gallbladder is an organ that stores bile produced by the liver. Most persons experience no problems from losing it. A few state that they have trouble eating foods with a high fat content as it causes them to feel nauseated. The liver will continue to produce bile, it just won't have a storage area anymore. As far as the liver biopsy, you need to ask the doctor who is doing it if it will be done outpatient or not.
Kind Regards,
