Thank you for your reply.My gallbladder is diseased, that is why it is not working. The last scan I had showed no signs of distention of the duct attached to my gall bladder. This is normally caused by stones. I think I did free everything up when I did the flushes, but a diseased gallbladder will not function. If it is not working it will become infected again and again. Infection after infection causes scar tissue to build up which causes hardening, so it is a viscious cicle, as more scar tissue forms the less the gallbladder will work and more infections will occur. The concentrated bile in the gallbladder becomes very thick forming stones etc.
