I am sorry to hear that you are having these kind of problems with your gallbladder. I have never heard of being able to pass gallbladder stones. Maybe it's kidney stones that you have, because I know that people pass those. I think when gallbladder stones get lodged in the bile duct is when you experience all those horrible symtoms. I went to many doctors for over 4 years. Nobody tested me for gallbladder until I was half dead. I had an emergency operation and was hospitalized for over 6 weeks. That was back in 1978. These days I hear you can have it done on an out-patient basis with three holes. Amazing........I am beginning to wonder what is going on out there in the health care field. I just had an ultra sound 2 months ago because I was complaining for the previous 2 months of pain and hemorrhaging. Nobody called me back with the test results until I called them a month later. They said they found a tumor on my right ovary. While I was in surgery it turned out to be my appendix which was the size of a cantaloupe. Which means of course that the ultra sound was read incorrectly or who knows what. They did find a cyst on my left ovary though. Anyways, their mistake saved my life. By the way, I was sent to a back doctor for the pain that I had felt in my leg and was treated with epidural injections in my spine. Turns out to be it was never my back at all. I am very lucky to be alive and feel that I have received a miracle. I hope you get to the truth of the matter with your condition. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
