General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

As you have typical symptoms of gallstones and it has been confirmed with ultrasound, you should visit a surgeon and get scheduled for laparoscopy. But before that, you should check your ovaries to rule cancer and other diseases out. It is advisable for you to have CA-125 level checked, have gynecologist consult and transvaginal ultrasound.
If gynecalogist will tell everything is fine, you can than get scheduled for surgery. In a meanwhile, you should avoid spicy foods, fatty foods and alcohol to prevent further gallstones pains.

Hope this will help.
