Patient Comments: Gallstones - Experience

Please describe your experience with gallstones.

Comment from: marie, 55-64 (Patient) Published: April 24

I have been taking ursodiol to dissolve gallstones, for 25 days. I am not sure if it is working, but I'm feeling somewhat better. I still can't eat much, I do a lot of smoothies and fruit, baked tilapia and salmon, baked potatoes and sweet potatoes. I am going to the doctor for a check-up in a few days.
