Wow! That all makes sense to me. It may very well be that the pain I'm feeling is simply part of the gallbladder's daily routine. I've also wondered about flushing at different times of the day, to optimize different results. Very interesting about your stuck stone. Did you change anything about the flushing procedure? What time in the AM worked best for you? Any other considerations?
As always, Telman, you seem to be something of a rosetta stone in what remains an elusive, unpredictable process. Thank you so much for chiming in. I've learned a great deal from reading your posts from the early days. Very detailed and informative. You've no doubt helped hundreds, if not thousands of people. God bless you.
