Hello,

* 0.8 mm gall bladder stone is not responsible for the narrated symptoms of alternate constipation and diarrhea.
* There seems intestine motility-related issue or malfunctioning of the gut flora.
* Primary concern should be focused on

- Maintenance of hydration with plenty of liquids
- Bland vegan diet
- Probiotics with lactobacillus content help great

* Must discuss the need of stool microscopy with colonoscopy for a further form of steps to be taken to cure the disease.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
