The findings on your ultrasound shows that you have many stones
from small to fairly large size. Gallbladder
distension can mean some
degree of inflammation. Eventhough you say that you have not had
an acute attack , it could be a disaster waiting to happen.
Problem is, one of the small stones can get stuck in the bile duct ,
that is the channel that brings bile into the intestine. Then you can
have severe abdominal pain
,fever,chills,yellow jaundice and hospitalization.
This could result in complications like rupture of the gallbladder and peritonitis
If you had a large single stone, there were options to treat with laser or drugs.
In your case, best option is surgery.This can be done as same day surgery
through laparoscopic approach. Recovery is shorter and you will not have
a large incision. Stomach bloating
and gas could be symptoms of gallstones.
Some times, you may have a hiatus hernia
and GERD to explain this.
I wish you good luch and be well.
