Thanks for writing in.
If the symptoms are due to gall stones confirmed by radiological examination of the biliary tract, then a temporary course of antibiotics and analgesics can be resorted to until you take definitive tratment for the gall stone disease. But if the attacks are severe with uncontrollable symptoms taking long time or perhaps refusing to resolve then surgery would be the only option.
