I have been diagnosed with a stone in gall bladder measuring 4 mm, one stone only. I do not want to go for surgery. Can it be treated with medicine?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The definite treatment for gallbladder stone is surgery. With medicines, there is very little chance for the dissolution of stone. As the stone is less than 5 mm, there are some chances that it may be dissolved, but it may take 6 to 12 months. There is only one drug used for this purpose, and you may start taking it. Tablet Ursodeoxycholic acid (Ursodiol) 250 mg twice a day for at least six months.
