                Dear Kathy and George, Lucy, Libby and Maudsie, Just wanted to let you know I have created a FB page for GBC for Australia and New Zealand (Maudsie I have made you an honary Australasian!) as one of the things I think we all went through is the desperate need to speak with someone from our neck of the words so to speak and treatments we can expect in Aus and NZ here is the link...http://www.facebook.com/GallbladderCa...
