Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

We generally give medicines to dissolve such small gall stones. They are ursodeoxycholic acid medicines up to 300mg to 1gm a day. We see good results in 3 to 4 months with it besides the regular diet advise from the dietitian. So please take specific diet from a dietitian.

Let me know if you have any specific questions
