I did my health check-up recently and in my gall bladder few stones of 4mm have been reflected. How should i get this treated?

Thanks for writing in

Asymptomatic gall stones can be treated conservatively

Yet the chances of stones of this size getting in to common bile duct and causing obstructive jaundice are always there

So if practically possible you may go for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern

Thanks a lot doctor for replying to my query. But would also like to check if this condition can be treated with Homeopathy as i don't want to undergo an operation. Someone has suggested that with homeopathy this condition can be treated.
