More info: A little more information would be useful. Generally the difficulties of inflammation will get worse by delaying the entire weekend.

It is certainly possible to have cholecystitis without gallstones. You should be evaluated by your doctor or a surgeon ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more

Recently I have been identified with Gall & kidney stone. Kidney stone is cleared after flush therapy.   Gall stone any medicine available. ?
