Hi Doctor, I am a 40 yr old male, diagnosed with a 8.7 mm gallbladder polyp/stone after I had some pain in the back and below ribs on right side of the body. Ultrasound showed that gallbladder walls were smooth and normal but with one polyp. However none of the doctors did any other testing including HIDA scan and they are all insisting on me removing my gallbladder asap. When I asked how urgent is this, I was told that things can get worse anytime although there is one polyp and some sludge only in the gallbladder which is visible. I have had no pain since the gb attack on december 22nd. I do have mild discomfort on days when i dont walk around a lot and work from home. Also my weight is on 135 lbs so I am not overweight either.
