Hello
Everything should get better as stated.

none of this sounds gallbladder related
A simple blood test called CMP would show gallbladder function if they have not done that...and liver.

But that is not my concern
With this continued nausea stomach ulcer is the concern..the symptoms might clear up with your current meds, but it would need further antibiotic treatment if you are positive for h pylori..which is a stool test..so have this stool test.

Finally, an ultrasound of the gallbladder would see if there are stones..but you really do not have those symptoms currently.

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......
