Opt for no meds if possible. Doctors are people and people are fallible. If the problem seems to be in the gall bladder, please do give my
suggestion a try before you allow surgery. Please? Just give Nature a little bit of that trust you have for Medicine - just for a week.
Naturally, it's your call. It's your life and your circumstances.
When my daughter was 6 years old, she was diagnosed with pyelonephritis - basically a kidney infection. She had them rather regularly, about five
times per year for the next two years. The doctors said that she also had cystitis - basically a bladder infection caused by E. coli. She lived on
low doses of antibiotics and antispasmodics so that she wouldn't wet her pants at school every day.
One day the doctor, at a regular check-up, said that he feels that her bladder needs to have the E. coli colonies cut away because the infection was
continuous and would start to destroy the tissue before long. I went away from that meeting with such mixed emotions. I would never allow them to
hurt her permanently. I had trusted them as far as was possible.
I was meant to call to schedule surgery for her. I never did. Instead, I put her on concentrated cranberry powder and gave her blueberry juice,
unsweetened, for two weeks while she got off the antibiotics and then bumped up the cranberry/blueberry doses until the poor kid could hardly breathe.
lol Six months later she was completely E. coli free and hasn't had a relapse. I went to the doctor with her then to confirm things and they wanted
to know what I did. I abandoned their methods completely and told them so. I told them how detrimental those methods were to a child and to anyone
really. I then told them about the berry treatment. The doctor scolded me like I was a naughty child, telling me how I endangered her life. Maybe.
But she's now almost 19 and healthy as a horse.
There were other things that I had to do battle with the medical community with over her, should you desire further confirmation of the validity of
alternatives to surgical solutions.
