Gppd advice above. parasite cleanses can be kind of rough for a couple of weeks, maybe longer.

If you only got out 5 or so stones on your last flush I am wondering if removing your gall bladder is the answer, but I don't know what kind of diagnostic testing they did that led them to believe surgical removal is the answer. Did you get a 2nd opinion?

I know it is late, but I wonder if these areas have been checked out diagnostically:

Along with appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease or any type of colitis can cause right lower quadrant pain. Non-GI causes can include a hernia or kidney stones.

To work up any GI, I would suggest an abdominal CT scan. This can rule out any masses as well as appendicitis. If negative, I would suggest a colonoscopy to evaluate for any inflammation or colitis that may be causing the inflammation. A colonoscopy would be a more comprehensive test than the barium enema.

The the abdominal CT and colonoscopy are negative, you may want to look for non-GI causes (i.e. musculoskeletal or kidney causes).

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
