When to Consider Surgery?

by Balazs

Posted on June 10, 2014

If you have continous cholecystitis then you have to go to the hospital.

I'm lucky because I'm young (gallstones rarely exist below 50). I have gallstones in my gallbladder but I don't have cholecystitis.

Please do not forget that I'm not a doctor. Don't risk your health even if you are eating tons of radishes.

If you don't get better after following my rules and the diet then you should consider the surgery.

Bon appétit?

Welcome Friend!

My name is Balazs and I have gallstones. I had 7 bilious attacks (5 in the first week). I had only 2 in the last 4 months. I show you how I do it.



  • Age: 37
  • Diagnosis: 2 or more gallstones
  • Symptom since: February 1, 2014
  • My goal: to become asymptomatic without operation

Your stones, your responsibility

Thank you for following my experiment! Please keep in mind that doctors would never suggest my strategy. It's my body and my responsibility.

Gallstones - Prevention

Eat radish! Radish should be your favorite vegetable.

I want to avoid gallbladder surgery!

Gallstones - Treatment

Medical treatment:

  • Oral ursodeoxycholic acid
  • Lithotripsy

Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal):

  • Open cholecystectomy
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy

My strategy:

  • To eat radish and fat whenever I can
  • To consider it as a lifestyle, not a treatment
  • To believe in me
