from your post, its very clear you have not read up on liver flushing. calcified stones can be slowly dissolved, there have been posters who discussed their ultrasound results showing same. besides, the goal is to flush them out, not dissolve them. and regarding gallstone ileus, sure it happens, read the old posts, you might learn something. it happened to me and made me fairly ill until i got it out. didn't stop me from flushing though, i just followed the instructions from that point forward. if you took the time to seriously read up on this issue, you would not make so many incorrect assumptions.
