Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Inflamed gall bladder usually refers to infection of the gall bladder also known as cholecystitis. It is treated with antibiotics and painkillers.
If it subsides for good , we can wait and watch or go for interval cholecystectomy - surgical removal of gall bladder. But as a rule of thumb - definitive treatment for cholecystitis is gall bladder removal.
Just plain painkillers may not suffice, if it is indeed gall bladder inflammation. The most common cause for gall bladder inflammation is stone in the gall bladder.
If there is any doubt that there is another reason for pain - a CT scan of the abdomen should be done. It may find out other reasons for your pain like kidney stone etc.
I suggest you to discuss these options with your doctor and clarify the further steps in getting you healthy again.
