Notify your surgeon: Your body is telling now is the time for the cholecystectomy, the sooner the better.

If you have severe: pain and fever, you might have developed an acute infection, not just colic, which might require antibiotics or even emergency surgery. You should consult with your surgeon, so that you can get proper treatment.
