Thanks for writing in

1]Yes you can correlate the pain to gall stones except the one that radiated to the leg

2]Lithotripsy has been tried in some cases succesfully but I would recommend you go for a Laparaoscopic surgery and get it removed as it can cause obstructve jaundice

Analgesics in long run are never advisable so it is better you stop them and take as and when needed

You may look for a good Lapararoscopy surgeon in Karnataka and get operated

Hope this helps
Wishing you a healthy life ahead
