One thing that came to my mind, is your diet. Without a gallbladder, eating fatty food can bring on a lot of pain. Is there any connection between what you just ate, and onset of pain? That is all that came to my mind, and I wanted to share. I am so sorry you are suffering with this. Lori Renee

You are right. You can only try to make it better. Nothing else. Damn, horrid illness. Lori Renee

Don't take the statin! Not worth the risk. Not yet. Some countries have much higher cholesterol levels before the docs use the statins. Just not worth it to your health at this time. Lori Renee

Pam, I had 20 sessions of Calmare/Scrambler therapy. Ten at one time, and then 10 about a month later. It lowered my pain from about a 7-9 on the pain scale, to about a 5-6, on the pain scale. I also have pain much less often. What it did not do, is help odd neuropathic things that I have in my toes. My toes still feel oddly stretched, yanked, exhausted, etc. I feel like I have socks bunched in my shoes at times, or other odd feelings. However, all in all, I am in much less pain, and that is wonderful. Good luck…. Lori Renee

I have heard that stopping statins can take the neuropathy away very fast. As far as natural ways to lower cholesterol, I have read to eat a red apple, carrots, and beets, several times a week, and they will lower your cholesterol. There is a doctor speaking of this on you tube. Perhaps try this, and see if it helps! Lori Renee
