Symptoms can be related to the gallbladder – usually called biliary colic or a recent infection (acute cholecystitis). These symptoms may reoccur with further attacks; and there is also a risk of  complications occurring (pancreatitis/jaundice/cholangitis). Some patients will elect to try and change their diet; lose weight but we know that recurring attacks will occur. It can be a period time before another attack occurs (weeks to months). The standard of care is that once symptoms develop the gallbladder should be removed.
