Where you given antibiotics for your gallstones? Has the pain gone away?
Have you been put on a low fat diet?

Lymph nodes can be enlarged for a number of reasons. It is important that you discuss these findings with your healthcare provider. They may simply want to follow up with another ultrasound later to see if the lymph nodes shrink on their own, or they may want to biopsy the lymph nodes, depending on what else is going on with you. Try not to worry too much, as worrying is never helpful, on the other hand don't ignore this!!!

It is our doctor's decision as what to do next about both of these conditions. We don't know enough about your health status or history to say. What did the doctor who received your scan report day? It she/he going to refer you to a specialist? Call you doctor and get an answer next week. Don't delay.

You need to see a Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist and they can get assistance from other specialists as needed. No individual doctor can effectively treat you.
You should go to a large teaching hospital near you to find the most knowledgeable and experienced doctors in your area.

Good luck on finding the best care available in your area.
