Pelvic scan report shows multiple echogenic foci in lumen. Gall stones?

My pelvic scan report for Gall bladder shows multiple echogenic foci measuring 23mm in size noted in lumen . Does that mean I have gall stones? What is the suggested cure? Are there any precautions I should take ( diet etc.)? In past (2 months back) I have had severe abdominal pains lasting 10-15 minutes couple of times.

Thanks for writing in.
Your description of pelvic scan for gall bladder study is in appropriate. It should have been ultrasound examination of the gall bladder and the hepatobiliary tree. If this shows radio opaque stones in the gall bladder with post acoustic shadowing then the gall bladder needs to be removed.
I hope this answers your querry.
