I'm not sure that I understand your question. Are you asking:

Are gallstones related to endometriosis?

Stones usually recur when nonsurgical treatments are used.

WThe good news is that the gallbladder is an organ that you can live without. So, gallbladder removal is the preferred treatment for people with gallstones that cause symptoms. In fact, gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) is one of the most common surgeries performed in the United States.

However, you might want to talk to you doctor about other treatment options if you do not want the surgery. These include:

* Bile salt tablets.
* Sound wave therapy (e
* Percutaneous electrohydraulic lithotripsy
* Topical gallstone dissolution

It's also been found recently that being physically active may ameliorate the risk of recurring gallstones.

Just a note- I recently had a baby and have gallbladder problems. The gastroenterologist said pregnancy can cause gallbladder issues due to hormones. I would deal with this issue before getting pregnant as that is the last thing you want to think about while pregnant!
