Why scar tissue?: Scar tissue by itself doesn't usually cause pain. Have you ruled-out other causes of the pain? Ulcers? Gastritis? Pancreatitis? A retained bile duct stone? Incisional hernia?

PAIN AND PROBLEMS: If you are having gb symptoms and forego the surgery, the bloating, nausea, and pain will continue. This can be moderated by eating a lower fat diet. Gallstones may eventually pass into the bile system, and cause jaundice or pancreatitis. Long standing chronic gb inflammation can lead to gb cancer, but that is rare. Laparoscopic gb surgery is usually a safe procedure. Speak to your surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: On the symptoms. Did the hida scan reproduce the symptoms? Those whose symptons are reproduced have a better chance of improving with surgery. About 80% get better with surgery, leaving 20% no better or worse with GI symptoms & diarrhea when eating some foods.

Not recommended: In general, it is best to take care of one thing at a time. Although tattoos have a low complication rate, there are problems that can occur, such as severe skin infections. I would recommend that you take care of your gallbladder first, and when fully recovered, you can think about getting your tattoo.See 1 more doctor answer
