hi
u have gall stone and its symptomatic means u have pain
high wbc and esr indicate infection
fatty liver is due to fat deposition in liver,it is related to it structure not function
while LFT are related to liver function.
so what u have is possible
better to consult surgeon,u might need operation to remove gall stone
