In brief: Yes

Gallbladder pain can be sudden- usually associated with eating- but can also leave a constant pain.
It is common for the pain to radiate to the back on the right side. If pain is worse with eating or vomiting starts- you need to call your physician as you will most likely need an ultrasound.
