Good morning
I am sorry to hear about your ill health
The only treatment for your symptomatic gallstones is surgical removal of gallbladder
Usually it is done by laparoscopic method with negligible complications
Medications like udiliv are not solely sufficient for the treatment of this condition
Hope this would answer your question
Wish you a speedy recovery
