I hope so. You can make jewelry out of them and sell on eBay for big bucks. Don't laugh, it's been done.

One of mine is in a museum, don't know what happened to the other two.

Back hurts, nauseated, don't want to sit down, stand up or lay down, aspirin/Advil/Motrin/ none help, but getting out and walking does help?

If you have a lot of them, they may have to take the gall bladder out. I know two people who have had theirs taken out and they live just fine.

They may be able to use lithotripsy on you, where they use ultrasonic sound waves that break them up and then the stones are small enough they will come out when you urinate. Lithotripsy is NOT painful. A major medical center should have it available, but only a gastroenterologist can let you know if you would be a candidate for that or not.

Gregg Allman had a Cholecystectomy (removal of gallbladder) years ago. Not sure exactly when or why I even know this, but I do.

Best of luck to you.

Depends how many of them you have, how big they are, but some people do not need surgery, they can get Lithotripsy where they use sound waves to blast 'em and break them up and then they just come out your body when you pee. Ask you doc if you'd be a candidate, and if they don't have one of them fancy machines near you, go to a big city, to a teaching hospital and they will.




That's Lithotriptic surgery for kidney stones. I've had it done twice.

Does your back still hurt from them blowing up your belly like a balloon?

Had my GB removed about three years ago.. Downside is some people get fatty food intolerance (I only do so if I eat a huge amount of fatty meat.)

If you are having attacks and don't have surgery:
1 - 50% of the people will be fine
2 - 25% will have surgery on an elective basis
3 - 25% will require surgery on a non-elective basis

It was number 3 that made my decision. Can't imagine travelling and needing emergency surgery (a friend of mine got really sick when this happened to him and he had to return from Haiti)

I had laproscopic surgery on a Thursday morning and was back to work on Monday. Probably should have given it a full week

One of my old bosses told me he loved being a surgeon (he was a liver transplant surgeon), because "surgery fixes things". He's right. Once they operate, your body will start to heal. You will return to being well. I actually need knee surgery right now, (torn meniscus), I am looking forward to it, because afterwards, it will heal. The pain is temporary, the healing will be permanent.
