Good info, threenorns! I also was going to attempt the flush before I researched it a couple months ago and came to the same conclusion you did. Still considering gallbladder removal or waiting to see what happens. My regular doc and GI doc both said some people take their gallstones to their grave with no attacks, but each time you have an attack, the likelyhood of future attacks increases. My doc says one more attack and I need to have surgery. I tried to find an option for surgery, but there's not one.......tho a low fat diet helps prevent attacks, it can't stop them all. The good thing about this is that my low fat diet is what sent me down the weight loss path.....finally.......24 pounds in less than 3 months and still counting. Thanks for the post.....hopefully it will help others before they try something that will do more harm than good.
