Cholelithiasis is the presence of one or more calculi (gallstones) in the gallbladder. Interventions for Cholelithiasis would involve comforting the patients pain, via p…ain medication. Drink plenty of fluids, and eat a balanced/nutritious diet that is low on fat. Fat in the digestive tract causes bile to be secreted, which bile comes from the gallbladder.
