I'm sorry to hear you're going through so much pain. I know how it is. The only other two things I know that can help are: sometimes drinking a glass of apple juice with a tspn of apple cider vinegar. But it sounds like your case if more complicated than that. That leaves the other thing, prayer. It DOES work, I know that from experience because one time I was just on the edge of Jaundice and I'm sure only prayer caused the blocking stone to be passed. But I also know sometimes the answer is no. I'll be praying that whatever your choice, operation or not, it will be right for you.
