Problems with Gallblader Flush

I have recently been diagnosed with a 3-5 mm gallstone. This forum has been quite encouraging for me as I abhor even the thought of a surgical procedure.

I am however a bit apprehensive of the "flush" process, particularly since my doctor suggests this is like trying to "move a basket ball through a garden hose". My sonogram showed the gallbladder duct measure approximately 0.5-1.0 mm inside diameter.

Assuming this little duct is willing to dialate large enough to pass the stone (despite the success stories I've read, still a leap in faith for me), does anyone have any input or case histories of a stone (once into the common bile duct on its way to the duodenum), inadvertently getting lodged in the Pancreatic duct? (please accept my appologies if this has already been addressed in this forum, however I did not find this discussed elsewhere)
