Several Gall Stones this question feed

Dear doctor,

I a 33-year old woman currently residing in the London. In October 2015 about two months post-delivery, i was taken into emergency with sharp right upper quadrant pain that lasted for about five days before it eventually settled. My stools had become clay coloured, urine became quite dark but abdominal ultrasound scan didn't show anything. My blood report showed hepatitis A which doctors said will pass by on its own given i take care of my diet. I was detected with severe obstetric cholestasis during the 20th week of pregnancy and was on Ursodyxolic 2 mg, piriton and Vit K tablets for the rest of my pregnancy preceding this abdomen attack and at one stage was requiring LFTs thrice a week. The symptoms settled over time but over the New Year of 2017 I developed further pain in the right upper quadrant and was seen at a hosital heee. This time an ultrasound scan showed multiple gallbladder stones and gallbladder polyps. The pain was severe enough to result in loss of consciousness. My father has been diagnosed with gallstones. I is just on multivitamins. I do not smoke or drink alcohol.

On examination there was no palor, lymphadenopathy or oedema. I was tender in the right upper quadrant.

My doctor tells me that the symptoms are very much in keeping with biliary colic from gallstones and suspects this was the same scenario in October 2015. I am advised that I will require cholecystectomy because of the severe nature of biliary colic and in order to reduce the possible risks of cholangitis and pancreatitis. My further blood tests were normal and an MRI scan showed that i have more than 5 but less than 10 gall stones, the biggest being 1 cm in size.

Please can you help me with your advise as i don't want to have my gall bladder removed surgically so early in life and would want to look for alternate remedies to evict these stones from my body naturally. going forward i will maintain a healthy diet to prevent recurrence.

Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

Surgery is advised when it is symptomatic cholecystitis with gall stones leading to an increase in the thickness of a common bile duct. In asymptomatic patients, gall stones less than 5mm are usually managed with medications. I shall suggest you with the basic medications that is used normally. But please do have regular checkups and in case if you have severe pain, please consult your nearest doctor immediately. Please follow the advise of your treating physician.

Ayurvedic medicines like Varunadi Kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily and Divya Kanchanar Guggulu can be taken for a month and then review.

Include horse gram, turmeric, ginger, garlic, pepper, lot of vegetables and fruits. Reduce excess refined flour, fatty foods, red meat, alcohol, caffeine and tea. Exercise regularly and Yogasanas like Navasana, Trikonasana, Marjaryasana, Paschimottasana, Halasana, Dhanurasana, Padmasana, Bhujangasana and Vajrasana wll be beneficial. Diet and exercise are very important to avoid recurrence of gall stones and try to drink enough water.

Dear Dr.,

Please suggest what to do as Varunadi Kwath is not available on the website you suggested. Is there another website or alternate medication?

Thank you, Ambika.
