Gallbladder removal: You should strongly entertain having your gallbladder removed. In terms of total health expenditures when comparing long term medical management/time off work, surgery is most cost-effective. Many hospitals and surgeons have programs for indigent care. Also with the affordable care act (aca--obamacare), many more will be able to achieve medicaid for payment.

Not likely: Gallbladder is located in the upper right. Left back pain is very unlikely to be from gallstones.
