Hi there.. I understand your concern.. your friend has stone in gall bladder(cholelithiasis)..but it's single and small.. usually until the patient is symptomatic about gall bladder stones we do not treat.. but since your friend is suffering pain abdomen she might have to get operated.. the only treatment for gall stones is surgery- removal of gall bladder(cholecystectomy).. either open or laproscopic cholecystectomy.. please consult nearby surgeon soon..
