For gallstones.... U would need surgical removal of gall bladder. Udiliv is given to prevent formation of gallstones in high risk patients such as obese patients n patients who have undergone bariatric surgery.

Hello there...., Medications you take by mouth may help dissolve gallstones. But it may take months or years of treatment to dissolve your gallstones in this way. Sometimes medications don't work. Medications for gallstones aren't commonly used and are reserved for people who can't undergo surgery.... gallbladder removal doesn't affect your ability to digest food...
