Gallbladder polyp, have weight loss, short term memory loss, poor concentration. Is this due to gall bladder?

Just found out that I have a gallbladder polyp . The pain in my lower right abdomen started in August and I got the results from my ultrasound yesterday. Im a 28 year old female, non-smoker, 5 8 and ive always been underweight . Ive lost 10 lbs since August 3rd that currenty puts me at 106 lbs. I am very concerned about having surgery at my current weight. Should I be concerned? Ive also noticed that my short term memory is on a decline. I cant remember what ived said in the past 2 minutes of all conversations. Its very hard for my to concentrate on anything. Could the issue with my gallbladder cause my memory to decline??

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
Anxiety and stress are the probable reasons for your memory and weight loss.
Gallbladder polyp is usually not associated with weight loss.
Getting operated is probably the best thing one can do, as it does not take longer than 45 min to remove a gall bladder, usually.
