Get a workup asap: Gallstone pain is managed either with or without surgery. If the stone passes without any complications, you can sometimes avoid surgery.

Is there a natural way to pass gallstones or is best recommended to have surgery? Do these gallbladder flushes really work?
Gallstones: Once your biliary system makes gallstones it is ongoing. Passing the gallstones can be dangerous, if the stones get stuck in the duct system. I am not sure if "flushes" really work. However, avoiding fatty foods, increasing your hydration does help to control symptoms. Gallbladder removal with surgery is nearly always curative, as the stones originate in the gallbladder.

Is there a way to pass gallstones .. im trying to avoid surgery .. if so what is the safest way to get rid of gallstones with out surgery?
Only very small ones: Small gall stones that can pass thru the cystic duct into common duct are the only ones that pass spontaneously.

Constipated for a week strain really hard to pass bowels I have right side groin & hip pain. Can my constipation be related to my gallstones?
No: Constipation is not related to gallstones. The pain in your groin may be a hernia due to the strain placed on the abdominal wall with bowel movements. Hernias are associated with a bulge in the groin. You should make sure to drink a lot of water, eat fiber and if needed take a stool softener such as colace. You may have to take something stronger like MiraLAX to help you have a bowel movement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have gallstones, need gallbladder removed, heard drinking apple juice, olive oil n lemon juice passes the stones, one is very large. does it work?
They usually don't: Gallstones can be large or small; most of the time they stay within the gallbladder, causing pain by blocking the outflow tract, called the cystic duct. Occasionally, small stones may get past this duct and enter the bile duct that connects the liver to the intestines. These stones can obstruct the liver or the pancreas, often requiring extraction. If one is lucky, they may pass spontaneously. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
