Try flushing. You can always have surgery. For general well being, quit chips etc; and limit fats to quality oils-- olive and/ or various quality cold processed nut oils. In addition to what someone else said in this sequence, add radishes to your diet. The only danger to flushing(and it's rare, but get informed) is getting a large stone stuck in the common duct-- Epsom Salts is supposed to push these along, but very rarely it doesn't, and then surgery is the only option and it's a more dangerous procedure than just getting the gall bladder. Serious liver flushers who've never encountered a stuck stone- blocked bile flow situation, can discount the reality of this complication but it is mentioned in the education section about learning to flush. Flushing is good for you. Just don't be naive.
