Wide Range: Gallbladder symptoms can last from a a few minutes to persistent symptoms until the gallbladder is removed. Symptoms can also vary widely and the severity of those symptoms can vary independent of the number or size of stones in the gallbladder. Persistent symptoms should prompt you to see a physician.
