Thanks for writing in.

From your report I understand that you have:
1. Sludge ball in your gall bladder: it is not a stone but semi solid appearance of bile that may form a stone later. Presently it's very small at 5 mm and can be treated with medicines.
2. Slight infection may be thete in urinary bladder. Urine test can give more information.
3. Ovaries mildly enlarged but not a real concern.
4. Uterus is normal.

Hope this helps.
