Thank you for the input. I have had two ultrasounds done, one in April and a few days ago. Both of them showed that I had no stones, only sludge. Part of my concern is if I don't have it out I'll have more severe problems later b/c stones will develop and the gallbladder may become diseased or if there is a way to get the sludge out and have no more problems. I am very conflicted right now b/c once it is out there is no going back. I eat pretty healthy anyway but right now my body is reacting to everything that goes in.
