Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • If you have symptoms of gallstones, like pain in your right upper abdomen and nausea, you should see a healthcare provider to help diagnose you and decide on a treatment plan.
  • Depending on how severe your symptoms are, you may take a wait-and-see approach or need to take antibiotics or have surgery to remove your gallbladder.
