In brief: Many

Most often it is recurrent pain esp after fatty foods.
Others include acute cholesystitis (stone lodged in cystic duct), pancreatitis ( stone lodged in common bile duct blocking the pancreatic duct), turning yellow, infection in bile duct ( can be life threatening) etch. Having said that, most people do not have any symptoms even if they have gallstones!
