Would taking milk thistle daily help ease the pain of my gall bladder problem until eventual surgery?

Probably not: The pain from gallstones is because the stone impacts in the neck of the gallbladder (gb) so that the gb contracts but cannot empty. Bg contraction is maximal when fatty food enters the stomach, so reducing fatty food intake and other foods that cause discomfort, such as spicy foods, may help prevent post-prandia (after eating) pain. The pain will resolve when the gb is removed.
