Result says Distended gall bladder with 6mm calculus. Taking Uscorol since a month. Better medicine than surgery ?

my test result says GALL BLADDER: Distended. Calculus measuring 6 mm is noted in gall bladder. COMMON BILE DUCT: Normal in size. I m taking 2 tablets(Uscorol 300 mg) every day from last 1 month. But, the size of the stone is decreased. Is there any good medicine available to dissolve the stones?. I am having very little pain(1 time in a week) in right hand side. Is there any surgery available to remove gallstone with out removing gallbladder?

Thanks for your query.You have been detected to have a distended gall bladder containing a stone of 6 mm size .Since you do not have obstructive jaundice and pain it is labelled as a silent gall stone .You may neglect it but you have to get your ultrasound scanning done repeatedly to watch the status of the size of the stone, Please note that there is no medicine that can dissolve the stone.Since gall stones are formed because of gall bladder itself been infected best permanent remedy is to get it removed by Laproscopic procedure which is very safe and result oriented surgery..
