Can gallstone pain be mild and occur infrequently?

Can gallstone pain be mild and occur infrequently? As I am having doubts about my scheduled removal surgery as I haven't had an attack since the 17th August apart from the occasional sicky feeling and some pain in my back when walking. I don't know what to do?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms can occur infrequently depending on the size of the stone and its movement or passage through the CBD. If worried, discuss your symptoms with our treating doctor/surgeon, and go ahead with getting the gallstone removal or gall bladder removal (as scheduled or suggested). If worried, consider taking second opinion from another surgeon and then proceed with further treatment options suggested/recommended. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/surgeon and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
