Welcome to ehealthforum

Multiple gall stones and polyps definitely require treatment as they cannot be dissolved by themselves.In the repeat USG it might be possible they were in such a position that were not visible.A HIDA scan would get a better view.Sometimes excess gas also prevents view.
Since you have pain consider going for a surgery for removal.

Take Care!
