I am 48 years old male and I was diagnosed with inguinal hernia . I have already planned the surgery to fix the hernia for next week . 2 days ago I had an ultrasound which showed that I have gallbladder sludge and maybe some very small stones . I never had any pains in the stomach and the only thing that might be a symptoms is some digestive problems . The doctor advised that since I am going to surgery for the hernia I should proceed with the removal of the gallbladder .
I don't know if removal at this point of the gallbladder is necessary and I am quite anxious .
Any help will be much appreciated
