I have gallstones..

I have been going to several doctors.. for my problem. They are telling only removing of gallbladder is the solution. What are all the problems occur when that can be removed? Is there any other way to get rid of the stones? Is it reforming after it was dissolved? Please tell me the correct solutions .. Thank you

If u have symptoms relate to gall stones, if size is more than 1 cm, if past episo of pain related to gall stones, family history of gall bladder cancer - Better remove gall bladder. If nothing - just chill. Medicine for gall stones is not much useful and the stones recur once u stop medicine. Removal of gall bladder has some side effects but are usually short term in majority.
