Re lomotil. Thanks for the reply. How do you know you have gall stones again? What are your symptoms. It mesmerises me to think of all these people swallowing olive oil and lemons! Jeepers, I wouldn't have a digestion system left if I did that. I thought you were going to answer my question and that was...how can I do the flush when I dare not even put half a teaspoon of oil near my mouth! I would get just 30 second warning to get to the nearest loo before dumping all watery, and painful stuff too. So...again..how could I do a flush? Do doctors know you are all doing this thing? It seems a little wierd to think of all these stones being passed. What's your opinion./// THANKS.
