Hi Hopeful, I had an ultrasound and they found the gallstone. The doc said it was so small (and I didnt have insurance) that they'd just hope it went away by itself. Lucky it did!! Perhaps your friend could try something similar if her parents are picking up the tab. I wish you had some parents like that right now to support you (((hugs))). I can understand her being picky at a buffet...I know I can only eat very limited foods (but I try and eat a lot of them). In terms of anorexia fears I suggest give her time and she might come out of it like I did and become healthier. If not, hospital might be the best.
