I never did any flushes. I took chinese herbs for years from Julia Chang, I tried accupuncture, and malic acid, chanca piedra, hydrangea root, etc... But was too afraid to flush. Stone is 2.4 cm and calcified and just will not dissolve. I was too afraid it would get stuck and destroy my bile ducts if I flushed. I just dont think it would fit.
I have great fear of hospitals and needles but I just cant live with the constant discomfort. It's controlling my life.
