Recently, I was diagnosed with multiple gallstones. My ultrasound report stated that my gallstones were fairly uniform in size and shape measuring approximately 6-7mm but my bile duct measures 5mm. However, my gallbladder was not thickened and was not distended. My gastroenterologist said that I need laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder. I'm afraid of the long-term effects of not having a gallbladder. But they couldn't offer me any other non-surgical way to remove the stones. I have found a site where they offer a gallstone kit to help dissolve the gallstones. But I'm not sure if it's safe. So has anyone tried the gallstone kit and was it effective?
