well, i went the surgical route with mine, (my dd was a brand new baby too) but there wasnt much of a choice. mine was so inflamed it was about to rupture. my dad's did rupture while i was pg with dd.
the surgeon said the majority of his patients gettin gb removal are postpartum moms. the weight fluctauaions added to the hormone changes in pregnancy seem to be somewhat responsible.
gall bladder problems also *seem* to run in families. my mom had hers taken out when i was young. my sister just had to have hers removed a few months ago (her baby was born in june)
hope you get feeling better soon either way mama!
if you arent in *extreme* pain, i would probably try the flush first, as long as it wont be harmful to your nursling.
