Do not have your gall bladder removed. I am proof (so far) that stones in the gall bladder and the ones forming in your liver are easily removed with a series of liver cleanses. I am feeling much better than I did a few months ago but I continue to cleanse once a month just as the full moon approaches. Get Andreas' book - The Amazing Liver and Gall Bladder Cleanse. I am in between my 3rd and 4th cleanses and am about to do a kidney tea cleanse as well. I have released thousands of stones. I have had (and still have some) pain in my legs, particularly my lower right leg, and attribute it to the meridians in our body. A diseased gall bladder, according to the study of accupunture, has nearly 40 pain points, mostly on the right side of the body. I also have had severe headaches, ear aches, leg pain and side pain - all on my right side and all subsiding more as I continue the cleanse. Forget what conventional medicine tells you about gall stones. Read the book (I bought it online and downloaded it) and let me know how you do. Good luck.
