Dear Tasha
I am sorry to hear that you are having gallbladder problems. I trust that the surgeon who requested the ultrasound examination has advised you regarding treatment or removal of the stones and possibly also of the polyp if this should be necessary. Nowadays most gallbladder operations are relatively non-invasive because the surgeon uses so-called 'key hole surgery'. Once you have had the stones removed you should no longer have any symptoms. This condition should not affect your chances of falling pregnant. I also hope that the cyst on your right ovary is being monitored by a gynaecologist who will advise you about treatment options and if you require any further treatment to conceive. The gynae may do hormone tests to see if your female hormone levels are normal. If you only weigh 47 kg, then you probably don't eat much fat in any case, but a low-fat diet is indicated to prevent formation of gallstones.
