Perhaps luvkrishna will particularly appreciate this (sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words):
I've put the approximate flush # based on the date the pictures were taken. I may be able to edit these numbers if they are off by more than, say, 5. Otherwise, I think it'll be enough accuracy to get my point across.
1. Flush #10-12 or so. You're looking at the result of just ONE ES run (I get 20-30 runs per flush, sometimes more)... Small wonder I can't even estimate how many thousands I rid my liver of.
2. Flush #32 or so. These are all the stones I was patient enough to fish out with a pair of chopsticks, for the ENTIRE flush.
3. Flush #48 (for sure, March 28 or so). Entire-flush "chopsticks" result:
If you look carefully, you'll see quite a number of stones close to or in excess of 2.5cm = 1in.
I call this "progress".
The largest stone I've eliminated is 3.2cm = 1.26in = 1 1/4in, pretty much the size of a golf ball. I still have it in my freezer. I'll probably take a couple of pics and get rid of it, along with hundreds of others.
EDIT: I hope I've done a better job with the pics now, so they are roughly the same size (that was the intention, anyway)
