What are the symptoms of chronic gall bladder disease?

by Symptom Advice on September 7, 2011

A friend of mine suspects she might have this. She is currently going to the Dr, but she was wondering about the symptoms and effects of this?

Thank you.

About 90% of gall bladder disease provoke no symptoms at all. If problems do develop, the chance of developing pain is about 2% per year for the first 10 years after stone formation, after which the chance for developing symptoms declines . On average, symptoms take about 8 years to develop. The reason for the decline in incidence after 10 years is not known, although some doctors suggest that "younger," smaller stones may be more likely to cause symptoms than larger ones.
