Are you sure you had Gallstones and not Kidney stones??
A Gallstone would have to be about 8mm to pass through the bile duct. Then it would come out in your stool.
Please let me know because I have a Gallstone but refuse to have my Gallbladder removed. I take Actigall(perscription) Peppermint oil,Phosphatydle Choline(spl?),Milk Thisle and Stone Free. I have also Tried Olive oil & lemon juice and a caster oil compress... oh yeah and accupuncture.
University of Conneticuit is working on a treatment to only remove the stone but its still under investigation.
As you can see I will try about any thing to get rid of this damn stone . Please let me know.
