In brief: Gb stone symptoms

Biliary stones may eventually pass into the small bowel on their own.
Worry less about diet & more if your stones are causing symptoms, or you have elevated bilirubin &/or dilation of the bile ducts on recent imaging. A sick gallbladder (found by cck-hida) or ductal stones (depending on location, size, biliary anatomy) may promote infection, pancreatic &/or liver inflammation & need to be removed.
