Detailed Answer:
Hi,
It looks like she is having acidity related symptoms only.

You can give her the following medications -

1. T Iladac 10 mg once daily for 4 weeks
2. Mucaine 10 ml thrice a day

If there is no relief, then you need to take her doctor for examination to look for other conditions causing similar symptoms.

Hi,
The definitive treatment for gallstone is surgery.

Surgery can be done laparoscopically if there are no contraindications.

Yes you can get it done after August 15th.
