In brief: Biliary colic

Gallstones can remain asymptomatic or cause gallbladder infection, obstruction of pancreas and/or liver. The last two can be life-threatening.
Docs recommend gallbladder removal when gallstones are diagnosed and patient is symptomatic, with bloating, belching, pain after eating, worsening with time and fatty foods. The risk/benefit analysis favors laprascopic cholecystectomy.
