Re: Just noticed GB problems
For the record, my doctor told me that roughly half of gallstone attacks are brought on by alcohol. I dunno how accurate that statistic is because it was something she said in response to me noting that my two attacks last month both happened while I was drinking a mild alcoholic drink. I've read anecdotes that some people get away with drinking, but I personally avoid it now since pain has trained me...
They made me fast before my ultrasound and I think it had something to do with having the digestive system not be active so that bowel gas and whatnot isn't obscuring the view of various places in the abdomen. That said, I found a neat link to a study that concluded (as Titchou said) that fasting before an ultrasound doesn't make much of a difference.
