Dr. Donald Colantino
Internal Medicine 62 years experience
Surgeon: In view of the partially distended gall bladder and the possibility that the gall bladder now contains sludge from dissolved cholesterol gall stones, I recommend consulting an abdominal surgeon for evaluation, advice and follow-up. Grade1 fatty infiltration of the liver is mild but calls for lifestyle changes of low fat,low carbohydrate diet, getting to ideal weight and regular exercise.
