Gall Bladder Update (Like You REALLY Want to Know)

Hi.
Well, I finally got my CT scan results back last Friday. Turns out, they were normal. Imagine that!
So, now I play a waiting game to see how bad my gall bladder may or may not get.
I am planning on doing a natural (or UNnatural, depending on how you look at it) cleanse in a couple weeks.
This cleanse is NOT something I'm looking forward to. First of all, you do an apple juice-only-diet for two days. Then on the third day, you drink a PINT of olive oil. Yes...I did type olive oil. And you drink a cup or two of lemon juice. Niiiice, right?
Next, you spend the next day and a half on the toilet, getting rid of gall stones. Unfortnately for me, this is a proven cleanse. It actually works, which means that I have to do it. I am not happy.
If you pray, say a prayer for poor Kendra, and her gall bladder.

Thanks!

I am thinking good thoughts about apple juice and olive oil.

Also praying that this relatively simple "cure" will work for you.

Fast - drink it fast. That's my advice (not that I've ever done it or anything). Will be waiting to hear how it goes!

Oh. You're really going to drink a pint of olive oil and 2 cups of straight lemon juice? I couldn't do it! I hope it helps...

I hate to be the one to "talk you out of it", Kendra, but that cleanse is abosolutely awfullllll!!!!!!!
Love you!

Oh my goodness Kendra!! You said this really works?? I never heard of such a thing. It sounds like it'll either kill you or cure you!! I'm praying for the latter!!

Thanks for the update and good luck!! Happy Mother's Day too!!

Wow. It sounds like the cure is as bad as the problem? I'll be praying for you!

Sounds horrible but once you've drunk it, then it's over. And none of those things are harmful. But I'll be praying for you because I know this cannot be pleasant. This is one of those things in life that isn't much fun. Connie W.

Umm...that sure doesn't sound like fun...but if it works, I suppose it's probably worth it. If it makes you feel any better. I drank some cod liver oil to help move labor along with Caitlin. That's some yucky stuff too.
