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

I have severe gallstones and heavy sludge in my gall bladder which is very very painful sometimes, due to which I am getting heavy injections and medicines, the injections specification is such as : 1. To stop me from vomiting 2. To get me to sleep 3. Painkillers I always get three-four injections at a time depending upon the intensity of the pain. Recently I noticed I ve missed my period, though my cycle is usually irregular, due to which I got scared and took a pregnancy test and it came out with one dark line and one fade line, then I took another one which was distinctive two lines. Then I went for an ultrasound as suggested by my gynaec, and nothing came in the ultrasound. I am very confused on what to do next.
