The information you have provided is suggestive of acute inflammation of gallbladder

Polyp in itself may not be the cause of the same

Anyway it is advisable to get it removed if it is symptomatic

The childhood problem has nothing to do with the same

Another option is go for a fresh ultrasound, complete blood count and liver function test and accordingly decide about the surgery

Hope this clears your doubts

Do write back in case of doubts
Wishing you a healthy life ahead

1] Hardly 5-7 %
2] Endoscopy will help in ruling out other GI Symptoms - go for an upper GI Endoscopy only

Hope this helps
Wishing you a speedy recovery
