Thanks for writing in HCM.
Your jaundice is not only symptomatic but complicated. you should get operated at the earliest.No medication will help at this stage.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
Although few people do advocate a liver flush for gall stones but it has very doubtful and controversial results.
This process may seem beneficial for very small stones but a larger stone more than 5 mm may get stuck in bile duct resulting in jaundice and this is probably happening to you,as you are repeatedly getting jaundice.Moreover even if you are able to flush these stones out,they will definitely form again.
So as a doctor I can say,the best would be to go for surgery.
