WhereTheWildGeeseGo: Because that's where they belong. It would be kinda weird if you had them in your head, right?But that aside, they're usually due to an imbalance of the stuff that enters your bile(in the gall bladder) the chemicals that make up the bile then can't do their job, and those stones form. Various theories how or why.Ask what kinds of stones they were (what they were composed of) for a clue (diet, etc)
