You'll have trouble getting calcium oxalate to dissolve in anything, but your urologist may try some other alkalinizer to perhaps help a uric acid stone; don't get your hopes up. ...Read more

Where will the gallbladder stones pass?

Where will the gallbladder stones pass?

They usually don't: Gallstones can be large or small; most of the time they stay within the gallbladder, causing pain by blocking the outflow tract, called the cystic duct. Occasionally, small stones may get past this duct and enter the bile duct that connects the liver to the intestines. These stones can obstruct the liver or the pancreas, often requiring extraction. If one is lucky, they may pass spontaneously. ...Read more
