Gall bladder calculus is causing cholecystitis.
Definitive treatment of gall bladder calculus is surgical removal of gall bladder.
Operation is commonly done laproscopically.Recovery is fast by this method.
Gall bladder calculus is prone to get obstruction and infection.
So,you should plan for definitive treatment.

At present you may need conservative treatment in the form of antibiotics and analgesics.Operation can be done after control of acute infection.
