There is no data available suggesting that this medication can effectively treat gallstones, I'm afraid.

This medication consists of several components, including metoclopramide (a motility drug), pancreatic digestive enzymes, and a gas-reducing agent (simethicone).

I would advise that you continue to avoid fatty meals, and that you continue with your impressive exercise and weight loss efforts!
