Question: what is the treatment for solitory XXXXXXX calculus Ms 13mm wall thickness normal
Answered by Dr. Rishi 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
A 13mm calculus should be operated upon.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Health Care Magic and Thanks for your question.
I presume you are mentioning about stone in your Gall Bladder. It would be better if you could send me the Ultrasound report for me to go through. Also please do let me know what was the reason for you to get an Ultrasound done. Any pain in the stomach, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, etc.
Usually a 13mm calculus should undergo Surgery.
Any stone larger than 10mm warrants a surgery in the form of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.
Do let me know the details as above and I would be able to advice you better.
Take care and do let me know any other queries on this issue.
