Is it maybe that the doctors are really only familiar with the calcified stones that show up in ultrasounds, etc. I had the same reaction from my doctor. Perhaps we need a new terminology. Perhaps we should refer to them as hepatic (or interhepatic) stones since they are formed in the liver. I'm guessing that few of the stones that we are flushing ever saw the inside or the gall bladder. Perhaps even calling them "stones" is misleading since, for the most part, they are relatively soft and the green ones tend to melt if left at room temperature in the air. Don't know what else to call them tho'. Just my thoughts.
ps: Don't let them get you down Kelly. Just like the rest of us, doctors don't know everything.
