Innumerable gallbladder polyps

I have been diagnosed back in December with innumerable gallbladder polyps, largest one measuring 2mm. I just had another ultrasound that still shows innumerable polyps, largest one measuring 5mm and placed at the opening of the gallbladder duct. My surgeon has never seen such a case and highly recommends surgery to have my gallbladder removed due to the fact that my gallbladder is filled with polyps and largest one is at the opening and could block it. Gallstones run in my family. My surgeon believes that he might find stones as well once they remove my gallbladder. I don't have too many symptoms - only some dull aches at times on my right side where the gallbladder is and I need to watch my diet as greasy foods can give me an upset stomach.

We are also planning on being pregant again in about a year, another reason my surgeon recommends surgery.

Would you have any recommendations?

Many thanks!
