Gallbladder rupture: Very rare diagnosis. If you are experiencing pain in the right upper part of your abdomen you should go to an emergency room and have a ultrasound done as well as some blood tests. You may need surgery. Never heard of gallbladder rupturing unless severe gangrene and even then it doesn"t rupture.

Urinary bladder?: If you mean urinary bladder rupture, this causes severe abdominal pain. Bladder rupture is something rare that can happen when the bladder is full and there is trauma. For example, a car accident while having a full bladder, or more commonly, this can happen to people who drink too much alcohol (esp. Beer), get a full bladder, then trip and fall onto their abdomen.

Usually no problems: If diagnosed and treated properly, usually no long term problems. Rupture is usually associated with other problems, usually trauma, so any long term issues are usually secondary to lasting issues from the trauma.

Emergency surgery: If you bladder ruptures, it needs to be repaired. Although urine is usually sterile, when it leaks into your abdominal area due to a ruptured bladder it can cause serious problems. Furthermore, what ever caused the bladder to rupture may have caused other trauma. Check with your surgeon.
