I didn't think there was a connection either (kidney stone, or liver) but if you read the insert, it does mention kidney stones and also incidences of liver damage and cirrhosis. So, for me, copaxone is a thing of the past. My liver function is fine. If they weren't looking for a kidney stone, they would not have seen anything on my liver. Had a gall bladder x-ray about 2 years ago and they didn't see anything then, so it does make me wonder.
