Once the common hepatic duct is filled, the bile flows into the cystic duct and then into the gallbladder where it is stored. The gallbladder allows the bile to flow back into the cystic duct and then the common bile duct which empties into the duodenum.
Bilious fluid, or bile, in the stomach can come from several different causes.
