I have digestive problems and my doctor has ordered an ultrasound exam to check for gallstones. She said they can be removed surgically but she recommended not removing them if possible. This has led to a lot of questions for me, and I hope you can help.
What are gallstones and what causes them? If they are removed surgically what kind of procedure is involved? Is there a natural way to remove them? Is there a way to live with them? Are there risks in not removing them? I would appreciate any help anyone can provide.
