Hi Stu,

Welcome back to the group. Thanks for the info only it isn't true in
my case. I'm glad you said 'could be the cause of 'many' attacks -
left side.

I lay on my right side just because of this logical approach to gb
position but the colic still comes.

There is only two other explainations why right side causes colic at
night also. These should be considered.

#1. The lighter stone - heavier stone theory.

The heavier stone will roll down through the bile if you are laying
on left side, but the lighter stone will float to the top of the bile
on the right side.

This doesn't fly with me because both sides cause colic for me. So....

#2. Closed system.

The gb which is closed of air will not act like a bottle of liquid
would. The (floating and not stuck to the wall of the gb) stone will
move with the bile no matter which way you lye.

This seems the most logical in my case. May work different for others

Just some extra thoughts on stone movements. :-)
