I wish you the very best on the fourth. Sounds like a good way to celebrate YOUR independence from stones. I am so glad I found this site!
You said something that caught my attention (about the shoulder and back pain). Does it hurt before you have a gallstone attack or most of the time and is it the left shoulder or right?
My left shoulder and back hurts most of the time accept it seemed to be considerably less when I did my last cleanse. Also I get odd muscle spasms by my shoulder blade, it feels like something crawling on my back. Have you or anyone else had that feeling?
