Cholecystitis "leaking toxin" untreated for over a year?

Over a year ago, someone I know claimed to have dx'd with Cholecystitis. They were scheduled for surgery a little over a month later, but said surgery was postponed due to elevated LFTs(I don't know if GGT and/or INR was included and I don't know which were elevated, to what degree or by what ratios). ... show more Over a year ago, someone I know claimed to have dx'd with Cholecystitis. They were scheduled for surgery a little over a month later, but said surgery was postponed due to elevated LFTs(I don't know if GGT and/or INR was included and I don't know which were elevated, to what degree or by what ratios). Here we are a year later and two weeks ago, this person said (and I'm quoting) their gallbladder was "discharging toxin causing pain and discomfort," which to me says, rupture, yet still no surgery, no sepsis, no SIRS, just life as usual.
