Suggest treatment for gallbladder problem

my niece is 16 years old and we just learned today that her gallbladder is functioning 25% rather than the preferred 35% (results of test done last Friday morning). She has NO gallstones, had an ultrasound first and then the hida test? so we have been dealing with this since Dec. 2013. She is in constant pain and has been nauseated a lot, felt sicky and thrown up late at night twice. Is it possible for her to do some type of cleanse when she is not in school for a couple of days to try and avoid surgery to remove her gallbladder? she is seeing the pediatric surgeon on Feb. 19th.

Liver transplants are not the only option for patients. Depending on the condition of the liver and the overall health of the patient, there may be other liver surgeries and options that the doctors at Global Hospitals could explore.
A partial hepatectomy or liver resection is one such option. In such a procedure only a part of the liver that has been damaged or had the cancer is removed. Other options include liver trauma surgery, pancreatic surgery in case the cancer requires complex restructions, gall bladder surgery, portal hypertension surgery, liver cyst or abscess drainage, and resection and biliary reconstruction surgery.
In the hands of the best liver transplant doctors in India, patients have the best possible chance at getting a positive outcome in cases of liver disease procedures and surgeries. For more information, contact the liver doctors at Global Hospitals.
