Hi...., The gallstones are only treated if they have caused gallbladder inflammation, blockage of the bile ducts, or if they have moved from the bile ducts into the intestines.... If the gallstone is made of cholesterol it can be slowly dissolved with ursodeoxycholic acid. This type of treatment may take up to 24 months to be effective. It is not as effective as surgery,...But it is helpful im patients who cannot undergo surgery.....
