Is gall bladder inflammation dangerous?

Not by itself: Depends on what the person is feeling. Are there gallstones, abdominal pain and nausea? Any concern for infection? What test said there was gallbladder inflammation? If there are gallstones causing uncomfortable symptoms, then surgery to remove the gallbladder would resolve the issues.
