welcome tohealthcaremagic
gall bladder stone once detected should be treated. very small stones depending on the nature of stone some times may be treated with medicines
please discuss this with your doctor.
there are many reasons for gall stone formation but treatment mostly surgery and now a daya laparoscopic surgery is mostly advised
your blood pressure is high .it should be treated .please check up with physician and get treatment

OBGYN Dr. Minoo Bhagia's  Response

Thanks for the query

Gall stone with fatty infiltration of liver is very common now a days because of the dietary habits
If multiple small stones are there then chances of obstrction in the bile duct following jaunice and sometimes pancreatitis are there.
As you are having single stone with no cholecystitis and no cholangitis means no thickening or inflammation of the gall bladder or duct , there is no emergency of the surgery but you may require it later on
Follow ups are very important to see the size of the stone and gall bladder inflammation
Diet control is very important , cut off sugar , salt and oily food

Regular exercise and diet control will prevent the size of the stone to increase
Ursodeoxycholic acid helps to resolve the cholesterol stone but should be taken under your doctor's guidance and prescription.
In calcified stones it should not be given

Take care

Any further query is most welcome
