I had an ultrasound earlier this year showing gallbladder sludge with possible stones. The tech said she thinks it's a large stone blocking the duct, but the DR. read the report as "sludge". Anyhow, my symptoms have been a tight full feeling in the middle of my ribs...sort of like a trapped gassy feeling that never goes away. And pain in my back, right side under my bra. Anyhow, I got sick of the pain and not being able to eat without an intense full feeling, so I thought I'd try this flush. Here's what I did:
I drank apple juice from noon until my movements were clear. (around 3-4pm) Then at 7pm I started drinking 1/4 cup olive oil and 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice. This is nasty. Sipped about 1/4 V8 juice along the way to chase the aftertaste. I did this regimin every 15 minutes.
I got very sick to my stomach after just 4 doses. Could not continue even though my instructions said to drink the whole pint. I had a handfull of salted pretzels sticks for the nausea around 9pm. I got the sweats and shakes around 10pm and put ice packs all over my face and neck until they went away. I fell asleep until 1am...at which time I woke and had the sweats again. At 1:40am I had a small cha cha event and immediately had to stand up and puke. It was a horrible experience. I could feel my whole body was just greasy and my breath was disgusting. Brushed my teeth, showered and sat up on the couch until 6am. If I laid down I became extreemly sick so I had to stay awake and sit upright.
I only had one TINY BM this morning around 10am-ish which was formed somewhat and I could see some half pea sized green blobies. I'd guess maybe 5...but I certainly was in no mood to examine further. My pee is loaded with oil.
Did you know that just this 1 cup of olive oil was 256 grams of fat? Fat is what makes a gallbladder attack come on. Why would I do this to myself? 256 GRAMS of FAT consumed in one hour!!!! I'm embarassed that I even attempted this. IT was torturous.
I just thought I'd share, because I feel I was scammed...lol. I rarely find anyone being so honest about their experience. I took it rather lightly being that so many people are doing this bi-weekly!! How on EARTH; people, are you doing this???
Anyhow, thanks for reading. And if you're a first timer...ask yourself a serious question if you're prepared to stay up all night and be puking OLIVE OIL through your nose at 2am! It was terrible. At this point, I'm ready to dig my gallbladder out w/ a paperclip rather than do this flush again. ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!
