Gall stones are a very common problem that occurs when the normal fluid that is contained in the gall bladder 'crystallizes' into stones that can cause periodic episodes of pain, especially often associated with the ingestion of fatty meals.
Although pain control with standard pain medications is definitely part of the treatment for gall stones, the definitive management of this condition is surgery to remove the gall bladder. Once a gall stone is formed, it is very unlikely that it will 'disappear' and, therefore, the risk for continued recurrent episodes of pain is high.
You may want to ask your primary care doctor
for a referral to see a general surgeon
. A general surgeon is skilled in gall bladder removal surgery, and they can review all of the results of your recent studies and help determine if this is the right direction for you to go in.
Again, please discuss with your doctor. If you have severe abdominal pain
, intractable nausea or vomiting, or fever, get in to see your doctor right away, as these might be signs of a complication of your gall stones.
