Thanks for writing in.
Fatty liver with gall stones and cirrhosis needs intense medical treatment for at least 6 months prior to contemplating surgery. If the stones are silent or asymptomatic then all the more one does not require surgery. Now I would advise you a course of liver tonics for at least 6 months and consider surgery only if you have symptoms.
