General Surgeon 's  Response
Apart from the size of the Gall bladder,thickness is also important.
If the thickness is normal and no stones in the Gall bladder,it is not of much significance.
If there is no pain under right rib cage,you need not worry.
But you should follow your doctors advice.
Wish you good health
