In brief: Call Them

Tell your surgeon that you are having pain every day.
Most will move your surgery up if you demonstrate you are miserable. Worst case scenario go to the ed if you cannot stand it anymore.

In brief: Acute cholecystitis

When symptoms are acute, severe, and progressive, gallbladder disease is called cholecystitis.
Episodic gallbladder "attacks" related to having gallstones is subacute or chronic cholecystitis in the setting of cholelithiasis (gallstones). All day every day sounds more chronic than acute, but everything is based on degree of severity. See your doctor if symptoms warrant; tests can be done to judge!

In brief: Vomiting and fever

Waiting for an elective surgery is difficult.
If your symptoms progress during this time, particularly fever and vomiting, okay to contact your surgeon. The surgeon will review your case and symptoms with you. With gallbladder disease, make sure you hydrate and avoid fatty foods while waiting for your surgery date.

In brief: Speedy gallbladder

Go to emergency room and say you are in a lot of pain and don't leave until they take your gallbladder out.
