How Can Gallbladder Stones Be Treated?

I am 30 years old, with 70Kg weight. I am diagnosed with multiple gallstones recently varying in size from 3mm-8mm. I consulted with few doctors some of them suggested to remove the gallbladder. One doctor suggested to have udiliv 300 for couple of months then test further. I am having low fat diet and not having any major problem right now except acidity. Please suggest if udiliv will be helpful or I should go for removal of gallbladder. Also suggest me what all I should avoid to eat in this situation.

General Surgeon 's  Response
hi.

noted history of gallstones and several consultations. udiliv and diet modification are just temporary measures of controlling symptoms of gallstones. eventually, symptoms will recur. definitive management is still cholecystectomy or surgical removal of the gallbladder. it can be done laparoscopically (goldstandard) or thru open technique. it is best if you consult with a general surgeon for clinical evaluation, physical examination and discussion of surgical plans.

hope this helps.

good day!!
