In brief: Liver sludge

The problem that caused gall stones is still there.
Liver produces the bile which needs b6 as pyridoxal 5 phosphate and phosphatidyl choline. Once the bile flow normalizes pain will stop.

In brief: Symptoms?

No symptoms, should be safe to do nothing.
If you have symptoms such as pain in the right upper abdomen, jaundice, or fatty food intolerance, then consultation with a general surgeon would be in order. The treatment is to remove the gallbladder (if you have symptoms).
