I am really sorry to hear that. I sympathize with you.
Each case is different. I think that SOMETIMES surgery is the best decision. Some people in my family died of pancreas cancer which is obviously related to gallstones...Some others "survived"
due to the surgery and even after 35 years they feel good.
That`s only an example but it`s a good example. If you can deal with it following some alternative methods - great! But if your symptoms are grave and constant it will be pointless to look for
a panacea here.
