I have done these and what a relief. To help soften the stones I use Ultra Pros. 90 drops to a quart of that good organic unfilered apple juice. Drink one quart for each of the 3 days along with all the other things you are doing. I believe that this can help you pass stones more easily. Can be bought from Christoper Vitamins in Utah. 800 453-1406 Good Luck!
