I too had gallbladder attacks but unlike some people on this site I had bloodtests and found out that my gallbladder was infected. I had many stones which showed up on the ultra sound. I took Antibiotics which cleared up the infection and helped the pain. Another blood test showed the infection under control. Then I started flushing my liver rather than having my gallbladder removed. I have no more attacks even though I still have stones to remove. I know there are natural Antibiotic which may help if an infetion is present if you do not wish to take prescription drugs. Good luck and good health. Nan from Australia.
