Dear laura
you had diagonosed case of Gallstone and you may be planed for surgery...
Even though minor cases of gallstones rarely cause pain or discomfort, complications can develop, wherein sufferers begin to experience sudden intense pain. However, there are ways to prevent this discomfort. For starters, eat at least three regular meals a day; skipping meals and malnutrition contribute to the development of gallstones and may aggravate existing stones. Additionally, at least 90 minutes of physical activity per week and reducing your body weight can stop the development of gallstones and prevent complications such as pain.
Take care thanks

Dear Laura
You have multiple gall stone with with thickening of gall bladder lining. This is not the good sign. Any gall stone (thickening of gall bladder lining inside) can lead gall blader carcinoma and that can metastasis to liver. Please take the appointment for laperoscopic surgeon for cholecystectomy. ASAP. thank you

hi

Cholecystectomy means to operate the gall blader. You have multiple stone in your gall bladder . in this condition there are chances of gall bladder cancer. generally gall bladder cancer spread to liver. another condition can be happen that those stones may block your common bile duct so you will get obstructive jaundice. So it is highly advisable to DECIDE FOR OPERATION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. CONSULT YOUR SURGEON .
One kidney is smaller than other, can you please tell me your daily urine output, what is the blood urea and creatinine level, and what is post pandial blood sugar level.. . thank you
