In brief: Reconsider

. In general if the problems continue and other options have not worked, then one should look again at the recommendations and reconsider.

In brief: U Need 2 C a Surgeon

App. 80% of people with gallstones never develop symptoms and need not have their gallbladder removed.
However, once attacks begin, the only way to prevent them from coming back is to remove the gallbladder. Of course, every operation involves a decision regarding the risks vs. Benefits; if the risks of surgery are too high, there are alternatives that may temporize matters.
