In brief: Get it removed

It is not unusual to have a stent placed prior to gallbladder removal if there is a stone in the duct.
Usually this stent is removed a few weeks later. If you are not having any symptoms such as pain, then there is no reason to worry, but you need to see your doctor about getting it removed.
