I'm hoping you all can give me some advice.. I apparently had a gallbladder attack last week that ended with me in the emergency room. Ultrasound revealed gallstones, though no blockages, they said. Fortunately, it passed, but they want me to have surgery..
I'm now getting the pains again, and have gotten instructions from my doctor to take the medications (phenergan & percoset) and see what happens.. If it gets worse, to go to the hospital.. I don't want to go to the hospital, and I don't want surgery!!
I did a flush on friday, and got out about 115 green stones, largest being about the size of 2 peas.. I had problems with the Epsom Salts , though, as I think it's so alkaline that it changed the pH and I got some yeast problems, to put it nicely, and have developed what seem like sinus-type allergies (sneezing, itchy nose & eyes), which I've never had before.. I eat mostly raw foods, and did that today, but I did eat a turkey sandwich & a hot dog yesterday.. It seems like those things would have caused the problem sooner, if they did it.
Do any of you have any advice on how to get through this without surgery and hospitals??
I can I do another flush at some point without the Epsom Salts ? Will it still work? When should I do it?
How can I be sure that the gallbladder is the issue? They did say they saw stones on the ultrasound, but I want to be sure..
Any help, comments or experiences would be greatly appreciated!!
