Thanks for using this forum. As per your description this seems to be what is called Cholecystitis, which is inflammation of the gallbladder wall. The treating doctor is right in prescribing antibiotics with Udliv tablets, which will help in curbing down the infection. Yes, at a later stage when the infection has been treated or if it still persists despite the conservative treatment, surgery would be the best option to remove the gall bladder. There fore Udliv can be given. Hope this helps. Regards.

Thanks for posting your query.
Your mother is most likely suffering from acute cholecystitis.
Udiliv contains UDCA and help in maintaining normal bile concentration. Sludge means thickening of bile.
You should continue the same medicine.
All the best.
