General Surgeon 's  Response
Intermittent pain can be because of gallstones, however if the stone is solitary and a very small size less than 5 mm it is better to have yourself a repeat scan after few days of normal diet and the scan to be done after overnight fasting. Small solitary stones can be treated by medicines. Removal of gallbladder does not alter the health and digestive system in anyway. wishing you a good health.

Thanks for query,
As suggested removal of gall bladder by surgeon there is no option even you are 27yrs.
if we do not remove there is chances of stone going into bile duct and sometimes may cause acute pancreatitis,a serious problem.
it wont affect your health in future.
Avoid fatty and fried food,
Avoid alcohol.
ok and bye.
