    I was wondering if anyone has had a body scan using gallium and did you get good results. I had never even heard of this test until last week.

    Gallium is apparently supposed to attach to the white blood cells and on the scan they can see where their are problems by the concentration of the white blood cells.

    So i am wondering how long it stays attached the the cells and if there is anything to do to speed up getting rid of it.

    Thanks and regards

    I did find out a warning about breast feeding where they say the gallium stays in the body for four weeks - have felt so much worse since having it was also looking to find something to get rid of it faster.

    thank you
