Sorry I am so late.
I am worried about ruptures or other inner injuries where you should not flush.
4 days after my last two flushes, I had stuck stones.
3TBsp olive oil with 1/2 lemon or even the oil alone with some water and lemon "unstuck" mine.
It will not lead to a visible flush. When I took magnesium, I was fairly weak for two days
which did not happen before with the oil/lemon alone but could have been due to cold symptoms.
The applejuice was probably good to get things moving but I need the oil push.
Better if you have not eaten for a while and can do 1/4 dose epsom
(will not bring on laxative effect in me) wait 2-4 h and then do the oil.
Best to put hot water bottle on to to relax things since you do not have the advantage
of the full Epsom Salts which do relax the cramping muscles.
Please let us know how you are doing.
