Thanks for writing to HCM

You are suffering from condition called as adenomyomatosios of gall bladder.
You didn't told whether you had pain or not.
Diffuse thickening of Gall badder mucosa is generally due to repeated infection.
Adenomyomatosis is generally asymptomatic.
But,if you have pain,you should go for cholecystectomy.
Get well soon.

Take Care
