Yes: Chronic cholycystitis can cause a low grade fever, but unlikely if there are no other abdominal symptoims.

Unlikely: Acute cholecystitis is an illness that resembles acute appendicitis, which doesn't last 2 months. Cholangitis, an inflammation of the biliary ducts, is another febrile illness but with a more malignant course not lasting 2 months either. I suspect another cause for your subfebrile illness.
