    Generally surgery is advised only if the pain is unbearable. please take a second opinion.

    Gall Stones are always a problem even if you have to wait, many stones do not disintegrate, if they are in many numbers though small, always advised to be removed. Gall bladder surgery is a common one using lap method,

    However confirm the exact reason of stomach pain, take a second opinion and move ahead....

    I don't have very much unbearable pain, Some times coming pain suddenly and left for 1/2 day. Some times stomach burning sensation no pain. Doctor forcing me to do surgery . He not investigation an other reason for pain. just seeing report and saying surgery. I met 3 doctos not giving alternate medicince also they are saying u have to do surgery in you life time. So go now .

    Visit a gastro enterologist from a reputed hospital, the exact cause of pain needs to be assessed. Without this do not take decisions as you may not be sure your problem will be solved even after surgery.

    Where do you reside, i mean in which city?

    Dear Sainiharika,
    Go to a gastroenteroligist immediately. Stones may be small. But sometimes they get into bile duct and cause pain and sometimes complications. Gastroenterologist would guide. Even if he advises surgery it is very simple...laproscopic. in two days they send home. Recovery is fast. My brother has undergone gall bladder removal surgery two months back...same problem. No cause for concern and worry.

    Op....in most cases ,doctors will recommend removal of gall bladder when you have gall stone.If the stones get stuck in the duct ,they can cause serious problems.

    That said,it is not an emergency situation in most cases. My mil is living with them for last 10 -15 years.She gets severe pain once or twice a year but most times ,she has no problems.

    I had gall stones for a year after the birth of my child and it was a nightmare for me . The pain was unbearable and almost every day and I opted for the surgery .

    I also tried homeopathy for sometimes with absolutely no improvement.

    If you feel that the time is not right for you ,talk to the doctor how long you can safely wait.
    Ask the doctors about complication that could arise If you wait longer.
    If you can bear the pain and if the doctor is fine with waiting,you could postpone it for a year or two.

    Or you could plan it well.
    You could call someone from home to help out for a few days with the kids.
    A planned minor surgery is better than having to do it at short notice .

    If you feel the doctors are over enthusiastic about performing the surgery for financial reasons,then you could get an opinion from a govt hospital doctor.

    Dear Niharika,
    For a few days they asked him to take little quantities of food more number of times. If taken more at one time bloated feeling. Weights should not be carried for a few days.
    He got it done at Asian institute of of gastro enterology, Panjagutta. A good team of doctors are there. Driving not allowed for a few days. He was in hospital for two days. First go for consultation....they would advise what is best for you. Take an appointment.
