I had flukes identified through stool, and I will have to say that they can live anywhere in the body. Not just in the bile and liver, tho those may be their favorite places. I have severe bile problems and saliva problems, so certaintly they are in that area. Over the years being undiagnosed with this rare disease they have spread out to other areas. I know because I can feel them moving and wiggling around. I can feel their size and shape inside me because they have become so large.
