This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

you can start with your GP doctor

they can prescribe you medications like ursodiol which can help dissolve gall stones.

your GP doctor can give you a course of antibitoics which can sometimes help calm down gall bladder inflammation

if this doesn't work, your GP doctor can refer you to see a surgeon who can talk to you about removing your gall bladder

do you have a GP doctor?

yes, she is safe to fly if she has gall stones.

she should avoid fatty foods and alcohol and oily foods which can inflame the gall bladder.
