Possibly: Generally gallbladder pain occurs under your ribs on the right not over them. Also, it tends to occur after you eat (particularly greasy foods). It would be unusual for gallbladder pain to get worse throughout the day. However, gallbladder problems can act very different from patient to patient. Your doctor should be able to sort this out with you.

Not necessarily: You do not have to get your gallbladder removed. People with decreased gallbladder ejection fraction (<50%) often have symptoms related to this problem such as pain on the right side after eating, inability to tolerate fatty foods and bloating. > than 80% of people will get better after having thier gallbladder removed. Rarely people have trouble digesting fats after surgery (cramps/ diarrhea).

Yes: Common lifestyle changes include losing weight, stoping smoking, avoiding foods and activities that seem to cause your symptoms. Medications can be quite helpful. After lifestyle changes and medications you should consider correction of the problem. Options may include laparoscopic fundoplication (nissen for example) and transoral fundoplicaton (corrects reflux without any incisons).
