Gallbladder Stones Anyone Done Alternatives To Surgery?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just found out that I have a 1.3 cm gallstone.  The natural health nurse said I should not do a cleanse to try to remove it.  It would get stuck since it is too big and possibly rupture the whole gallbladder.  No surgery has been recommended (as of yet) by the GI doctor, but she has more tests to run.  I think she may want to discover what all needs doing first.  I am not having pain or recognized symptoms of gallbladder problems.

 

I have heard that sometimes they can break gallbladder stones without surgery.  Has anyone had that done?  I want to keep all of my body parts if I can.  They are wonderfully designed. 

 

Other related questions:  Are celiac and gallbladder problems linked?  Both my Mom and Dad had theirs removed and many if not all of my grandparents.  Also, Am interested if people had theirs removed pre or post diagnosis and anything about gallbladders.

Hi Dee,

 

They use ultrasound to break up gall stones sometimes.  I haven't had it done so I can't describe the process.  If you search the forum for gallbladder there are many threads about it.
