Brief Answer:
Yes, surgery is necessary.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Yes, you should have a surgery. Stone in the neck of the gallbladder causes the bladder duct obstruction. This may lead to abscess formation inside the gallbladder and can even cause sepsis.
So you definitely should have a surgery. In my opinion, as soon as possible.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
