This is interesting, Adrienne. I guess that's sort of what I was theorizing
about (but you phrased it so much better!). So a large amount of sludge
could cause similar problems as a big stone. It does make sense - I mean,
why should the gallbladder have the corner on pain in passing stones?
Gheez, when I think about how overworked and under cared-for our livers
generally are, it's no wonder that people end up in liver failure so often.
I'm just thankful that I discovered some of this stuff at a relatively young
