HI bibi... Welcome
I don't think that they will just remove the stones. I haven't had gall bladder issues before but my husband had his removed because of stones. Actually he was READY to get rid of it as much pain as it caused him. His was done laproscopic and usually its an outpatient surgery and you are out the same day. He stayed over night though because of minor complications. It took him about
a week to be able to get up out of bed without assistance from me and another week to fully recover to where he could go back to work. You have to be careful with this incisions on the abdominal wall. It is painful after surgery but you get pain meds and it helped my husband a lot. He is so much better now and he would take the pain from the surgery over the pain from the stones anyday.
