I can understand how you must be frightened. Personally, I think the Ultra Sound technician was very unprofessional in her she handled your questions. I would suggest that you do a gallbladder/ Liver Flush as soon as you can. The Hulda Clark flush is easy and inexpensive. Since you may have calcified stones, I would suggest that you drink all the applejuice you can stand for several days and flush. The pain eating certain foods points to Gallstones more than a tumor. I was diagnosed with GERD and was told by my last MD that I would be on Nexium for the rest of my life. Since I started Chiropractic care and Liver Flushing I have only had one very mild episode of reflux. I am symptom free most of the time. Please consider flushing before you make any decisions about surgery. It might take multiple flushes to ease all your symptoms, but you sound like someone who could be helped so much by trying this. One thing-don't expect much sport from your doctors about flushing. You could start on apple juice today and flush Saturday night. If you don't go back for you test results until Monday, you may already be on the road to recovery. Don't worry about Dr. Clark's advice on parasite, kidney and Bowel Cleanses right now; just do her Liver Flush following the directions exactly. I really believe it will help you.
