Is surgery necessary for my case?

Is there ever a possibility that someone can have biliary dyskinesia, with an ejection fraction of zero, and not require surgery? This is my personal situation, and I'm wondering if other options are available to me other than surgery. I have a only a few small gallstones, but a variety of longtime abdominal discomforts and a moderately fatty liver.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If the gallbladder is not functioning, its best to have it removed. As this can cause stasis of bile and more stones formation. This can also cause significant complications such as acute cholecystitis, pancreatitis, cholangitis, etc, in which the prognosis is not good. So, surgery is necessary and discuss this with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
