Gallstones

My husband has been diagnosed with gallstones in Jan-15. We are almost on the verge of getting his gall bladder removed. There are multiple stones (roughly 25-30 or more) of 5-6 mm and he is facing problems with motions, gastric trouble, abdominal pain. The pain recurs roughly every 2-3 months. Is there any way where we can treat this without removing gall bladder

You need to know that pain is because of small multiple gall stones slipping down in the bile duct and blocking it or blocking the neck of gall bladder... This is called biliary colic... It can give rise tho Jaundice or gall bladder infection called cholecystitis.. Treatment is laparoscopic surgery of gall bladder removal. Recovery Is quick and easy
