Thankyou for taking the time to help a complete stranger. I will keep you posted as I intend to get my stones tested to try to convince the sceptics like the radiologist who gave me that look that when I told her of my plans to avoid surgery. I will do my next flush in a few days and will take on board all you have told me. I am keeping stones in the freezer from previous flushes. I am amazed at the colours shapes and size of the stones. I have passed my experiences on to a friend who was booked in for surgery this month and he is also giving the liver cleanse a try. People like you are priceless and you personal experiences very motivating. I am feeling better each day and my extra energy is a bonus. Only someone who has experienced the ritual and results of the flush can understand (it should be compulsory for all medical students.) Bye and thanks again.
