What can be the reason for crystallization of gallbladder?

Yes, thank you. Approximately 12 years ago, my gallbladder was removed because of a gallstone. After the surgery the surgeon indicated that my gallbladder was severely crystallized. Due to some health issues now, I am wondering what would/could have caused my gallbladder to have become crystallized?

Hi,
It must not be crystallized but must be a porcelain gall bladder perhaps. the reason is recurrent inflammation by the stone.
