Possibly: if this was an incidental finding then ou may want to speak to a general surgeon about it. However, if this was a finding after an episode of pain, you should definitely have the gallbladder removed completely as soon as possible . having small go stones or sludge may lead to Future problems so you should definitely seek medical advice. good luck
