Hi, I am Gastro surgeon Dr. Satish Devakumar,

Gall stones of any size WITHOUT SYMPTOMS does not need surgery.

Gall stone symptoms are:
1. Upper abdominal discomfort such as heart burn, indigestion,  bloating.
2. Right upper abdominal pain, fever, vomiting.
3. Jaundice.
4. Pancreatitis

When your have recurrent symptom no 1 or one attack of symptom no 2, 3 &4 - gall stone surgery will be beneficial.
