highly skewed elements in gambit

i'm trying to mesh a gas turbine blade with cooling holes using Gambit, the mesh is structured, but in when i mesh a volume a message appears "mesh of volume 56 contains 36 highly skewed elements", however Gambit mesh the volume, at other times a similar message appears too, but Gambit dont allow to mesh the volume. my question is: if Gambit allow to mesh the volume can i to use this mesh? the area where the highly skewed elements are located isn't the area that i try to analyze.

thanks in advance guys

best regards

highly skewed cells mentionned from Gambit have skewness greater than 0.97, which should faild check mesh in fluent.
You can try working with this mesh, but if it diverges, or doesn't start, you know what you have to do...
