I had several gall bladder attacks when I was younger (middle school age) The Doctor I saw said they weren't that bad and I was young so he wouldn't touch it. Then I was walking around the mall on Black Friday (perfect day, right) in the 8th grade and it was so bad I blacked out and was vomiting blood. They took it out that time. The doctor I saw that time said the first doc I went to should have taken it out and would've saved me the problems of it rupturing. Just beware, when you get your gall bladder taken out you will most likely have SEVERE heartburn and TERRIBLE, as in the MOST terrible gas pains you have ever had in your life. I get them especially bad when I am pregnant in my first trimester. But it's better than gall bladder attacks. I would get a second opinion.
