honestly, it sounds to me like it would be worth your time to look into. Even if you decide to go ahead with the surgery, and i'm not telling you that you should or should not, the clogged liver should be addressed. unclogging mine did wonders for me. check it out, you may even be able to save your gb... once its gone, its gone and you can't get it back. if you are open minded, check it out. let me know if i can answer anything else.
