Hi, considering his age and comorbidities i. e existing medical condition definitely risk is there you should out weight risk vs benefit , if he is symptomatic having pain vomiting/ nausea or had developed any other complications due to gall bladder stone then you can think of surgery if he is not having any of these its better not to undergo surgery. Hope this piece of information will help to decide. Wish him all the best.
