In brief: Any symptom = OR

Gallstones without symptoms are watched at times.
Once you start having symptoms, then 95% keep having symptoms or complications (infection, pancreas inflammation, or blockage of bile duct). Symptoms include pain in right upper or central abdomen after a meal, sometimes with nausea.
