thanks for all your info. i have had problems since i was young with my GB. i have a medium sized stone in it (well i did in 2010 when i had an ultrasound). i am going for another. i have so many digestive issues and pain and bloating and burping and gross feeling i sometimes wonder if some of that is caused by the GB and not just my stomach. i would really like to try saving it, but i dont know if it's worth the pain, and if i get my VSG and still have GB attacks, jeez. not cool.
i'll try the remedies, usually i boil flaxseeds and make a tea and that helps. i'll try the epsom salts, i have some. never thought of eating that stuff. lol. apple juice i've heard a bit about, i know people do those before the flushes, but i don't know if i totally believe those flushes are gallstones and not the ingredients clumped together and coming out looking gallstoney. i think i saw somewhere where they tested the stones and it was the ingredients for the flush, i'll look that up again.
