Gall stones have become quote a common problem these days, thanks to our

previous attacks of cholecystitis; however, in many cases pigment stones
are also found even without such bacterial infections.The gall stones may
be solitary or more commonly multiple. Solitary stone may attain bigger
size that may be composed of cholesterol, a translucent material. Bile
pigments are often deposited on its surface.The multiple stones usually
become faceted because of friction against one another. They usually
contain alternating layers of cholesterol and bile pigments. They are
usually the result of previous gall bladder infections.Pigment stones
containing biliverdin (often termed as biliary mud) are uncommon variety
found more in biliary duct than in gall bladder.Symptomatology-

disease, in which the patient often complains of bloating and flatulence
immediately after food, associated with belching. The symptoms simulate

bladder (if bigger), typical colic starts.

to back or shoulder blades.
