I have had my ultrasound today, and it said... - helen-louise
I have had my ultrasound today, and it said...
There are now "a few" "small" stones in my gall bladder!

This is a Very Good Thing. When I had the first ultrasound in July 2005, there were tons of the buggers. Even I could see them with no training whatsoever - they appeared on the mostly black & white ultrasound picture as coloured spheroids which sparkled & "spangled" as I moved around. There was also lots of "sludge", which is mostly what was causing me pain.

So the gallstone-dissolving medication is working, and no new gallstones have formed. Hooray!

This does not, of course, guarantee that my gall bladder won't spontaneously start producing more stones in a year, 5 years or 10 years - but it means I'm ok for now :)

Woot! I suspected that would be the case from the way your health has been recently, but I'm glad to hear it confirmed.

That's good news. I hope they disappear completely. I think they're more likely to come back if you stop taking the uda, but if I remember right you can take it long term anyway. *hugs*
