I am28 & I was diagnosed as having gallstones. I cant afford the surgery. I am taking antibotics and they are for seven days. What else can I do to help with this problem so I can avoid surgery?

When bile stagnates in the gallbladder, gallstones can form, leading
to possible bacteria growth. This situation often triggers gallbladder
attacks that spur severe cramping and pain, particularly if the
gallstones block the bile duct — the tube connecting the gallbladder to
the small intestine.
You can effectively prevent such attacks by regularly using the herb curcumin, which stimulates the gallbladder to release its bile. Curcumin also has antibacterial
and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent infections and inflammation in the organ.
One of the most common medications known to destroy liver cells is acetaminophen (as found in Tylenol). Even when taken in recommended amounts.
Several powerful nutrients have been shown to help protect liver cells from damage inflicted by toxins and toxic medications. Grapefruit, quercetin and curcumin all reduce the toxicity of acetaminophen as well as a number of other toxins. N-acetyl-L-cysteine
(NAC) and methionine are also both effective in  treating acetaminophen poisoning.
patients with viral hepatitis have been seen when alpha-lipoic acid, silymarin (milk-thistle extract), NAC and selenium were used.
Taurine, indole-3 carbinol, the carotenoids, acetyl-L carnitine and natural forms of vitamin E
are also powerful nutrients that can help protect the liver. All can be found in natural health stores. Ellagic acid — a nutrient found in most berries, especially raspberries — also protects the liver.

Try natures sunshine, they are all natural supplement products that can help with specific issues like the one your having. I used it when I had kidney stones and it worked like a charm.
