Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing again and sorry for the delayed response.

Yes she has to undergo for the surgery.

Even though Gall bladder status remain same in USG and not causing any pain, she should go for surgery because it may cause problem in future.

Rite now she is relieved of pain and other symptoms because of medication.

If it not removed now , her symptoms will start again with gall stone, abscess formation and carcinoma etc.

According to my opinion get done the surgery

if you have any doubt, you are wlcome.
