Gallbladder Disease Answer A16980
Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The presence of gall stones and having an air travel wont make the symptoms worse. Just take care to avoid eating fatty foods before and during a flight. Take some snacks instead and stretch your legs by moving.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
