I want to say 'thank you' for everyones support in this group over
the last 4 months. Rachel, Lu, Susan, Dale, Suzanne, Agnes, and many
many more. I had surgery last Thursday and finally got my gallbladder
out. It turns out that my gallbladder walls were diseased and would
have produced more stones anyway. The walls were 4mm instead of the
normal 2mm. There was a lot of preforming sandy grainy stuff stuck
into the rough walls. Also puss was found inside. I kept the 1cm
stone. It was nothing like I ever got out in a flush. Orangish, hard
as a rock, crystalic like one of those rocks you buy in a rock store.
It never would have reduced in size with dieting or herbs. It is so
hard I can't believe that I made it.
Anyway, I'm recoving fine from surgery and am now painfree,
stonefree, and gallbladder free.
I will take a picture of this stone and send it to anyone who wants
to see it.
Thank you all again for your help, information, motivation,
encouragement, kind words, debating issues, laughs, etc. I wish for
all of you who are searching for better health and happiness that you
find it. Good luck.
