Both my sister and I had symptoms....nausea, occasional sharp pains. I had mine out right after my dad was diagnosed 3 years ago. I had a HIDA Scan which showed it wasn't functioning and had sludge as well as a sonogram. My sister had both tests, the sonogram was inconclusive, but the HIDA was bad so she got hers out. Both were pretty bad looking. It was a good move. Lots of people have bad gallbladders and never know. We, however, had symptoms. I bet my dad did too but thought it was stomach pain or indigestion, or just didn't want to deal with it. He never complained the whole time he had cancer! Some pain threshold.....

My brother has not checked his yet. I think he should though.
