Hi there.

Thanks for writing in.

You need to visit the surgeon who will advise you appropriately.If this is a mild case of uncomplicated calculous cholecystitis, treatment requires oral antibiotics ( eg. levofloxacin and metronidazole) and analgesics( oxycodone acetaminophen combination).

If severe abdominal pain, vomiting , fever you might have to get admitted and be given IV fluids etc.
The ultimate treatment of complicated cholecystitis is removal of the gall bladder(cholecystectomy)

You also need to get some blood tests done like complete blood picture and liver function test.
