Hi,
your problem is surgical. Gall stone is very difficult to remove by medicine. So go to a surgen for operation. Avoid fatty food.

hello.. welcome to healthcare magic..i want to make u aware of the fact that u need treatment for gall stone as your gallstone size is 5 mm. it can be treated medically without any surgery.. surgery is usually done for gall stones bigger than 1 cm.. symptoms may be pain in right upper abdomen region, fever, yellowing of skin and sclera of eyes, abdominal fullness, clay coloured stools.. you must consult a nearby general surgeon.. dont worry its completely and easily treatable.. wish u a speedy recovery.. take care
