welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
if stones are not symptomatic then surgery can be postponed.if you are getting abdominal pain more frequently then go for an elective surgery
medication are available like ursodeoxycholate are helpful.but it take longer period for the stone to dissolve
make dietary modification and consult your doctor for best possible treatment
hope this information will be helpful to you
take care
