Hi Liz! I read your reply and I wanted to add this. I wanted to mention that if you have a stone and it gets stuck in the duct, it'll mess with your pacreas and liver too. Anatomy lesson (in case you don't know): the GB duct joins up with the liver duct which joins up with the pancreatic duct all in the same area. It's a really small duct that they all feed into so it doesn't take much to block it. Then they all get backed up and the trouble starts. My OB had pancreatitis from a gall stone (he's the one that MADE me go see someone about mine) and my coworker got jaundic. They were both hospitalized: he kept his GB but she got hers yanked. I think it's funny that a small, unnecessary organ can cause so much pain and trouble.

Hey, I don't mind the lesson. I knew they were all connected in some way, but not the details. I am praying it's something like that. The only thing that scares me is something called primary bilibary (sp.) cirrohsis. Have you heard of that? It's not what you think (not from drinking). It affects middle-aged women (me - 42) and is more of an autoimmune thing. I developed joint pain in my fingers in April, which could be related. Anyway, I know the mind goes crazy in these situations, so it's good to have less fatal conditions to focus on! Hey, what are you going to school for? Ellen
