Brief answer....best course of action is surgery
Detailed answer....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and seen the reports.
The best course of action,rather we should say only course of action,is surgical removal of gall bladder. It is done very easily these days by laparoscopy.
Laparoscopic removal is the shortest and fastest surgery with fast recovery.
Consult a surgeon and get the surgery done as there is no other way of treating a gall bladder stone.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
