Respected User, hi I evaluated your query thoroughly.
You have only 2 options :
* Conservative management -- temporary relief in which you have to
= avoid oily spicy nonveg stuffs.
= can take proton pump inhibitors for symptomatic relieves.
= taking meals and suppers with 25% stomach remaining empty
= avoid tobacco / alochol / any other abuse substances if using.
= ultimate surgery if still discomfort persists even above all done.
* Surgical management -- permanent solution -- best one.
= Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Hope this clears with your query.
Thanks for using Health Care Magic and reviewing my answer.
Wishing you a fast and speedy recovery from the same.
Bye Dear take care.
