Thanks for your input. I do not agree with these flushes either. I'm not saying that surgery is the best option, but I think that there is no point in trying to save a gallbladder that is giving you so many probs in the first place. If it is diseased then surgery might be a good option. Glad to hear that you are feeling much better after your surgery! I am praying that my outcome will be positive like yours and all the others I know.
