Hello

This is Dr. Bonilla

I understand your concerns. Porcelain gallbladder is a condition caused by the intramural calcification of the gallbladder wall. There is no treatment or medication to decreased the calcification. Surgery is recommended because there is a high risk of cancer.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please rate my answer.

Thanks

I am disappointed that I am not able to reverse the calcification, but know now that I have to follow my doctors advice and have my gall bladder removed because of the high risk of cancer.
Thank you, Arlene
