Gallstones : On ultrasound echogenic foci in the gallbladder are gallstones more than likely. Hi cholesterol levels require statin therapy. Taking out the gallbladder is the usual therapy for gallstones. Laporoscopic cholecystectomy is overnight surgery. Oral medication used long ago takes quite some time if it works at all ...Read more

Consider GI or Surg: Consultation for additional evaluation. Surgery may be in your future.

Do You Have Pain?: The presence of gallstones in the absence of symptoms does not warrant gallbladder surgery. In fact, most people with "silent" gallstones will never develop symptoms, as high as 75% of the time. I advise my patients to be familiar with the symptoms of gallbladder disease and return if these develop. While surgery is safe and easy, it is not risk-free. ...Read more
