Thank you for asking

No you should not be worried but concerned though regarding advancing weight which has itself played a role in the cholelithiasis.

Now i suppose depending on the stones location, it would be wise to get rid of gallbladder with minimal invasion before it block the CBD.

Seek a hepatobiliary surgeon and let them be the judge of that.

Take care
