I startted having occasional attacks over a 2 month periods Sept./Oct. of this year, (2015) The last one was bad enough to send me to ER. Which was diagnosed as gallstones. Went and had an ultrasound, and found small gallstones, with thickening of the gallbladder walls. Ultrasound tech said it needed to come out. After reading and trying to decide what was best. I cancelled the surgery. I consulted a naturepathic, that got me on supplements to help the liver/gallbladder. I havnt had any major attacks in 2 months. But I am still experiencing back pain across the shoulder blades, and pain in the area of GB, and under the right ribs. Feels like a heaviness in there that comes and goes. Abdomen, feels bloated. I am torn at what I should do next. I am getting frustrated with pains. Using ice packs, and transdermal packs of castor oil helps somewhat. But they never really go away. Does anybody know, or have advice for what I should do next? I am close to the point of just going through with surgery. I have mixed feelings. All the readings encourage keeping the GB... But how do you know at what point you are at, as to when natural healing isnt helping. Frustrated!! Need thoughts ~~~
