Suggest treatment for gall stones

hi, i went to hospital for an apparent panic attack and was recently diagnosed with 2 gallstones in gall bladder by chance, largest one measuring .8mm. One doctor suggested surgery, the other said I can try Udiliv 300mgs tabs twice a day to try and dissolve them. What do you think I should do? I do not experience any pain currently.

Hi.
Thanks for posting query at HCM.

if NO pain then surgical intervention for gall stones is NOT necessary.
you may take udiliv and cut fat in your diet.
exercise regularly.
decrease weight if over weight/obese.

wish you good health.

regards,
Dr Tayyab Malik
