I had emergency surgery last February. It was life threatening. Had I taken some of the "try liver flush" advice I am certain I would be dead. My gallbladder was badly infected. I was the only surgery done at my hospital that Sunday as I could not wait. What started as a 1 hour laproscopic surgery turned into a 4 1/2 hour full open. Spent a week in the hospital. Please don't over-generalize advice. There are too many variables.
