this is the gallbladder surgery support forum NOT a debate forum johng
the diseased gallbladder will have further stones even IF the Gallstones are removed by an effective method eg lithotripsy. why take the risk of sepsis, empyema of the gallbladder, Cholangitis and pancreatitis? laparoscopic surgery is safe and effective. you don't need a gallbladder so why not have it out?
