I am not sure from your comments whether you are too young or too
mature in age . However , if you have been diagnosed with multiple
gallstones , it is extremely difficult to get rid of them by non-surgical
methods. There are medications to dissolve the stone, but it does not
work for multiple stones. Small single gallstone may dissolve with
medication in about 3-6 months and it can come back after the
medication is stopped. The other method we have available is
, blasting the stone with shock waves.
Again , this might work for a single stone but multiple stones pose
a problem. There are complications from this procedure, because
small portions of the broken stone can block the bile passage and
cause a major problem requiring surgery.
Now a days, gallbladder
surgery is a same day procedure done
through small button holes on the belly with the use of laparoscope.
Recovery is faster. This is done even at 80+ years of age without
problems. Low fat diet may help to prevent some attacks, but it is
not a cure. Herbal medicine, olive oil and lemon juice does not help
to get rid of the stones.
I hope this information helps you.
I wish you the very best.
