Oh, I see. I hope you were able to do something about the bile crystallizing in your ducts. I agree with your ND and don't want the surgery, either.
I predicate that decision on my intent to keep going with the cleanses, though. I just finished up my second one. I avoided a migraine this time; I only barely felt one starting to threaten to come on around 7 pm, so I just did some relaxing floor yoga poses with a hot water bottle and it went away. But I cheated on the diet--I was not so strict about no fat, no protein. And I only passed very small stones this time. I also had a more unpleasant time starting around 9 pm when the Epsom Salts really kicked in. I even had to run to the bathroom right after 30 minutes of lying still after the potion, and I feel like it didn't work as well as my first time. So I intend to be more strict next time, and in the meantime, detox as much as possible, while still eating enough to get my strength up and hopefully still avoid the migraine.
I appreciate the support. :)
