I finished my 3rd flush 10 days ago. I tried the massage thing I've read about here and I actually passed one fairly large stone. However, 4 days ago, I started to experience that familiar, awful "indigestion"-like pain. I think the massaging worked, but it took a few days. I know I am passing a stone, even though there's very little pain on the right side (by the way, does anyone else experience the indigestion rather than pain on the right side???). Anyway, I had the "indigestion", Sunday evening, all day Monday, and a little bit on Tuesday. I passed a few small stones. I took Epsom Salts on Monday and within a very short time, the pain went away. When it came back on Tuesday, I was too afraid to take Epsom Salts again. I plan to do another flush this weekend, but was wondering just how often we can take ES without totally dehydrating.
Just to let you all know that I so appreciate this forum, and even though others are starting to encourage me to get the gallbladder out, I'm determined not to go under the knife!
