Yes, : It could. I hope you are treated properly and after the inflammation subsides one should consider removal of your gb that has probably stones in it. Do not gamble severe complication can occur so the best is get rid of it as soon as you will be in best of shape. Nobody like to operate during inflammation unless it is a must.
