i was looking for a stone-softener because i stopped getting stones out 2-3 flushes ago and now i'm really sick. i have expelled 2-3K stones in the past 16 months. a few were fairly large. i started using the "stone breaker" by herb pharm yesterday, and i have been feeling a dull ache in the gall bladder area off and on. has anyone used this herb and if so what was the result? thanks!
