CT Results-small gallstone

I just found out my CT results today and I have a small gallstone and have to meet with a surgeon this Friday. Does anyone know what to expect and how they might treat this? I have been having right lower quadrant pain for awhile on and off. I am just a little bit worried and want to be prepared. Thanks

Re: CT Results-small gallstone

Well, if you are seeing a surgeon they only do one thing - operate. So I owuld presume that they will want to remove your gallbladder, which is normal if one has gallstones.

Re: CT Results-small gallstone

Thanks for your response. I figured they would probably suggest surgery, but I didn't know if they would suggest a different kind of treatment with like sound waves that break up stones or something like that.

That's for kidney stones, not gallstones.
