Thanks for your question.
Most of the times (in 80% of cases) gallstones can exist even without any symptoms. Every year about 5-10% cases become symptomatic.
Gallstones can definitely cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, indigestion, or bloating sensation.
Since your gallstones are symptomatic, treatment is required. Surgical intervention
should be considered for patients who have symptomatic gallstones. In most cases, laparoscopic cholecystectomy
surgery is currently the standard of care.
Nonsurgical care for gallstones, is by oral dissolution therapy, though this option is rarely used today.
