i had excrutiating pain in the anus after the Epsom drinks. Someone should tell you this so you can use some type of thick coating cream before hand. I have handled a LOT of pain in my day and i can say the burning of my skin was not fun. Drink a lot of water the week before or in preparation, juice if you're acidic at all or have reflux issues or are in need of chelation as I am. i haven't done another flush since bcse i'm doing MORE prep-work than most people i believe bcse i'm pretty sick. i've been juicing mango, carrot or tangerine (with Celery & green apple) in particular bcse of Vitamin A which rebuilds tissue & skin so maybe i'm defficient. This time i'll try baby Burt's bees diaper cream & some 84% aloe cream among other things. I'm also armed with more baking soda so i can jump in the tub again if it burns.
the drinks weren't gross. i used apple juice instead of grapefruit.
the actual passage of stones did not hurt at all and was relieving (the next day). Luckily it didn't happen until i woke up next day so my skin had time to heal bcse i was screaming and probably waking my downstairs neighbors.
