but are they able to see the residual gallstones and where are they because I am pretty certain she has had numerous ultrasounds and a scope down her throat xrays every test and they haven't found anything, Please tell me how were they able to see them and find them and where are they located, because your pain sounds the same as hers. and thank you for the reply

Joseywales, I will have more info for you after a “special” MRI they are doing Tuesday. What I can tell you is that they did an upper GI to rule out some other potential causes of my pain. I believe the diagnosis is at least partly based on my symptoms: i kept telling the 911 responders that the pain felt EXACTLY like a gallbladder attack, complete with pain up the right shoulder, nausea, band of steel around my middle, non-relenting pain, etc. The digestive specialist I saw says he is sure it is residual gallstones that can be removed via an endoscopic procedure, even if the stones are lodged in the duct from my liver. To answer your question, they hope to see the stones via this special type of MRI. Please give your daughter my very best wishes, and stay strong.
