I just want to say thanks to everyone on this forum for sharing their experiences and being so helpful. We truly learn from each other and that takes some of the fear out of what we are trying to do. I count it a blessing to have found this forum. After reading so many posts I am encouraged that things are going to work out concerning my husband's Gallstones in spite of his having a "stint" placed in the duct. The stones can be crushed, softened, and broken up when we take the time to prepare ahead of any flush. He has been feeling good (no attacks) and has much more strength than one week ago. I will let you know how things turn out. Happy flushing to all of you!
