Long term use of Ursodiol

I have multiple gallstones and suffered from a gall bladder attack almost 3 years ago. I have been avoiding getting my gall bladder out. I have been taking Ursodiol for almost 3 years and have not had a gall bladder attack. I just had a scan done on my gall bladder and it is unchanged from 3 years ago and my Dr. reccommends taking it out.

My question is, Could the use of the Ursodiol be causing the fatty infiltration to my liver? ## I had fatty tissue in my liver way before I started using Urso.
