I am not saying it's you making these claims, but it is bizarre for anyone to claim that all the stuff you discharge during a liver flush/gallbladder flush is magically manufactured in the small intestine in a short period of time.
I have done flushes. Every one was different in what came out. The later ones are the most interesting. My second last one I produced quite a few, maybe 20, angular "things" that were 1/2 - 3/4 inch, roughly, in size. They were grayish-white in colour. I cut them open and inside was dark-green, firm, waxy substance. The whitish husk of these "things" never broke down when the green waxy substance softened. If this is not a calcium compound, as stated on legitimate medical info sites, I would like to know what it is. If the green waxy substance was not bile (composed largely of cholesterol + other substances) maybe someone with more knowledge could advise me.
As for the soft, uncalcified stones, it's not for me to say what they really are or how they got there.
As for the 86 year old father, I can't see how he could possibly get the oil/lemon juice/grapefruit juice mixture down! Not unless he is really motivated, and he is not, so that's his own business. Andreas Moritz, who wrote the book on liver flushing, seems to think that anyone of any age can benefit from flushing, but you have to want to do this.
