Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Symptoms due to gall bladder conditions like GB stones and cholecystitis include - Pain or tenderness under the rib cage on the ‎right side , Pain between shoulder blades, Stools light or chalky colored, Indigestion after ‎eating, especially fatty or greasy foods, Nausea, Dizziness, Bloating, Gas, Burping or belching, ‎Feeling of fullness or food not digesting, Diarrhea (or alternating from soft to watery) and or ‎Constipation.

If you are symptomatic and tests including ultrasound have detected Gall stones or reduced GB function, then you may need a low fat Diet , physical exercise , Medications can help to control symptoms. If not controlled , Surgery would be the best option.

If surgery cannot be done, then the only option would be with Improved diet (Avoidance of high fatty foods and grease), Physical exercise, weight loss provide the best results ‎in ‎‎individuals with low functioning gall bladder. Medicines to improve digestion and cleanse the gall bladder ‎can also ‎‎be prescribed to help in improvement of your symptoms.

You might be benefited by consulting your primary care physician who can examine you and provide proper medical assistance.

I hope this helps.‎
