No, gall bladder can't grow back. If your symptoms are relieved by antacids, then the most likely cause for your symptoms is gastritis or acid reflux (Gastroesophageal reflux disease). You can continue to take antacids as needed and avoid any foods that particularly trigger the symptoms. If symptoms persist or get worse, you should see your doctor.
