A year ago I went through a very stressful time, which resulted in an acute uptick in pain originating in my gallbladder area, spreading to my back, and across to my left ribcage area. This pain became chronic. I had a CT scan that showed nothing, including no stones, no sludge, and no abnormalities. Blood work normal. This led to a variety of misguided attempts to diagnose other terrifying maladies, none of which came to light. Six months after the CT scan, I asked for an ultrasound and a back xray. They found an 11mm gallstone during the back xray, and then found a number of mobile Gallstones
during the ultrasound. Gallbladder is otherwise "normal." No wall thickening or signs of trauma. The whole process has been very frustrating and unnecessarily terrifying. My pain worsens throughout the day, peaking around early evening, then calms down later in the evening. By morning I'm basically back to normal. Then the cycle starts over again. Thankfully the pain does not require medication to manage, but it is very annoying, and there are a variety of other symptoms consistent with biliary dysfunction, not including digestion which is working very well. It's like my gallbladder is a rock in my shoe that I can't remove, that causes more pain as the day progresses. I haven't had a true "attack" which I'm thankful for, but the daily, grinding discomfort is worrying.
I know people have eliminated Gallstones
from their gallbladders, although this seems to be an unpredictable event. Moritz seemed to think this happens later in the flush process. His wife supposedly eliminated a calcified stone measuring nearly an inch
across, which he shows in his book. I guess I will continue flushing, taking supplements, and hoping for the best.
Thanks for listening.
