If stone is silent then leave it, no need of surgery... Bile acid therapy will not help so much as stone size reduction will take time even more than a year..

Well, surgery is the best option.
You can try
Tab Udiliv 300 mg twice daily for 20 days.
That's the only researched therapy which actually helps.
But ultimately, surgery is the best option.

All Gall Badder stones don't need surgery. Since she is asymptomatic now you could consult your surgeon regarding the next course of action and whether surgery is required or not. These stones would have been present for a few years or more and you have just discovered it now. Other non surgical methods are not very helpful.
