Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.R.K. and I am pleased to assist you.
You have silent gallstones. These do not require any treatment. The only definitive treatment for gallstones is surgery which can be done by laparoscopic and open methods. Medical treatment and lithotripsy are less effective options.
Surgery is usually advised when the stones cause inflammation and other complications.
You need to reduce weight if obese, check your blood glucose and cholesterol levels as these are some of the common risk factors for gallstones.
I hope that answers your question. Regards.
