Biliary disease: Gallbladder removal for a diseased gallbladder will lower your risk for serious gallstone related complications, like acute cholecystitis, gallstone pancreatitis and cholangitis. In most cases the pain is also relieved. It is a safe, effective and durable procedure. Take family with you to ask questions. Be well and good luck.

It should: You are52 female have 4 coronary stents and are concerned about right upper quadrant pain being relieved after gallbladder surgery. The pain should get better after the operation. Most patients report improvement after the pain of the surgery. This should also help to differentiate your abdominal pain and cardiac, although you may have had silent ischemia. Talk to your surgeon.

I dont like: The baseball sized lump. It could be a hernia. It could be a mass.
You need to see a doctor.

Reccurrent symptoms: This can be gastritis, gerd or other GI issues and even a primary common bile duct stone. I recommend seeing your pcp or GI doctor to begin work up and get you proper medications.
