Hello and hope you are doing well.

Since the stone is lodged at the neck of the gall bladder, this could lead to repeated episodes of obstruction and inflammation leading to cholecystitis, causing pain nausea and vomiting. This is an indication for surgical therapy, cholecystectomy.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
