For several months, I had severe abdominal pain, back pain and heartburn. I was finally diagnosed with a single 2.1 cm gallstone in the neck of the gallbladder and told that my only option was surgery. My grandfather died after gallbladder surgery last year so I wanted to do anything and everything to avoid it.
My heartburn went away after my first flush, but that could just be because of improved diet. My back pain went away after about 10 flushes. I haven't had pain bad enough to require painkillers (except cramps) since flush #13. That one released 2 very large stones. Isn't it funny how the ultrasound showed only one stone?
I still feel a bit sore under my ribs and have felt that tight feeling preceding an attach a few times. I'll probably flush again in about a week to see what happens.
