Hi. I am brand spanking new to this site and I look forward to finding out lots of info. First off, my best wishes to you. I know that annoying pain, it is awful. I am awaiting my first "surgeon" visit this week and I hope to find out his thoughts about surgery for myself on my GB. My test results say my GB only works 16%, but is this a true answer to my problem?! That is my biggest concern right now. I hope you find something out soon. My mother just had her GB removed a year ago and her problems have not completely subsided either. It is a toughie...I just wanted to send back a message to you to say good luck.
