Very big and hard gallstones?
Bear with me on this one. It gets kind of graphic! But I need advice.
I did my 3rd liver cleanse this weekend. The last one I did was one year and 15 lbs.
ago. I knew I needed to do this because my gallbladder just "felt" full.
I was surprised at how much bigger these Gallstones
were than ever before. Anyway, I developed a problem later Saturday evening and Sunday morning. I did the flush on Friday night with great success but started developing constipation by Saturday night. I felt that there was just something blocking my bowel opening. After some major pushing and hurting a cluster of a number of Gallstones
came out and I thought, "Great! That was it!" Sunday morning I woke up and felt the urge to defecate again. I thought I was going to develop hemorrhoids after this one. This one was worse. Never before have I even had anything show up as late as Saturday night, let alone Sunday morning.
I finally got it out and the hard "clump" was about 2 1/2" in diameter. I thought,"There is no way that is one big gallstone", so I got a straw and started poking at it. The whole clump broke apart into smaller gallstones.
My question is twofold. How did they get all clumped together and when? What can I do to prevent this from happening again? It was VERY painful.
