Hello

Hypercholesterolemia and gall bladder problems are not related to each other.
You should take medicines for increased cholesterol level.Increased cholesterol in long term may cause generalized atherosclerosis.
I suggest statins like atorvastatin 10 mg single dose at night after dinner.It can control increased cholesterol level.
Avoid alcohol and smoking if you take it.Go for brisk walk regularly and take lot of fibers in your food.
Avoid saturated fat and fried food.

Get well soon.
Take Care
