    hi mark, sad to hear about you having gallstones. pero alam mo i once have this officemate na nadiagnosed din ng ganyan at kailangan daw magpaopera. pero hindi siya nagpaopera pero gumaling siya. subukan mo magnatural remedy. there’s this concoction slash regimen of apples and olive oil in the morning. i’ll send you the link, hanapin ko muna. it really worked. besides, healthy ang apples and olive oil. maybe it can spare you from surgery. 🙂
