the pain you are experiencing is most likely due to the breakdown of Gallstones as gravel/sand within the bile ducts and biliary system generally and therefore causing a blockage to some degree.
There are over 500,000 gallbladder removals each year within the USA, so I would advise against becoming a statistic and contributing to the affluent lifestyle of a specialist surgeon.
On eating any fatty food the gallbladder will release a specific amount of bile in response to the amount of fat eaten, and it is probably this flow which has been interrupted by the sand/gravel, causing the pain you mention.
There are ways of dissolving gallstones and flushing your biliary system, but I think the combination of OO and GFJ may not be the best way for you.
As an alternative, the Lancet, (the British Medical Journal) once reported that the use of one quart of pure apple juice (daily) for one week in dissolving gallstones. After this one full week of freshly extracted apple juice, one cup of extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil was used just before going to bed. The patient was told to lay on their left side during the night. In addition, a high dose of magnesium (500mg or more) can also be used to facilitate the removal of the stones.
I would try this type of flush FIRST and see if that works, and if not, or it again causes pain, I would water-only-fast.
Water-only-fasting was used very successfully in dissolving gallstones and cleaning out the biliary system, and regardless of the stones' size by both John H Tilden MD and George Weger MD (amongst others).......................
Please read this extract from ORTHOPATHY..........
"Tilden says: "When the catarrh of the liver is overcome, secretions become normal and stones disintegrate and pass out through the gall-ducts into the bowels, and then out of the body. No treatment, no surgery, is necessary." "A correct treatment," he says, "will be directed to removing the cause or causes of toxemia."
Removing the stones does not restore normal liver function, hence more stones will form after their removal. Draining the gall-bladder does not improve the body's nutrition. Removing the gall-bladder does not correct the catarrhal inflammation that caused the stone formation.
There can be but one cure for gall-stones. This is: restore the normal functioning of the liver so that normal bile will be secreted; then the normal bile will cause the stones to disintegrate and pass out. Correction of the inflammation makes gall-bladder drainage or extirpation unnecessary. Correction of gastro-intestinal catarrh renders surgical exploitation of the whole digestive canal unnecessary. The undesirable finish pictured under etiology may be avoided by correct living. Although physicians and surgeons are so unfamiliar with cause that they believe surgery alone can help and usually recommend this, the great army of post-operative invalids one sees everywhere attests that no real cure comes from this spectacular treatment. Operations leave cause at work, hence more pathology develops.
Weger says: Given proper assistance the chemistry of the body can be so altered that stones soften, disintegrate, and pass out with but slight discomfort. We have treated many cases and. seldom have we found it necessary to resort to surgery. It is a remarkable fact that softening occurs very rapidly on a complete fast. Frequently patients coming for treatment for different ailments develop hepatic colic from the eighth to the tenth day of fasting. In these the presence of gall stones may never have been suspected. The same is true of stones in the kidney. In recurrent attacks there is no treatment in the intervals to equal a diet restricted to fresh fruits, salads and cooked non-starchy vegetables. It can be safely predicted that there will be no recurrences in those patients who follow instructions as to diet and exercise. In most instances if the gall stone is not larger than a small olive it will become soft and pass out without resort to surgery and its consequent risks. The exceptions are in those run-down people who have no reserve vitality or courage left to sustain them for a reasonable time while nature is establishing a normal chemical balance. Extreme caution and conservatism on the part of the physician is necessary in determining the proper course in a given case. The process of recovery may seem slow but it is in reality marvelously rapid, compared with the long time it takes for the stones to form. Without recourse to olive oil, bile salts, and the one hundred and one remedies that are generally prescribed, our percentage of non-surgical recoveries is so high as to warrant a favorable prognosis if the patient cooperates in the removal of the first cause."
