Can gallstones reoccur 15 years after removal of the gall bladder?
Not as gallstones... ie, there is no gall bladder anymore... but in rare cases a retained stone in the gall duct becomes symptomatic long after surgery.
i see that you are away from your computer. i'm going to switch this to a Q and A format. please tell me what your symptoms are, your other medical problems, and anything that has been done to try and figure out your current problem.
oh, there you are...
i'm standing by...
are you there? the wife is calling and we have to go but i can continue on my cell phone with the q and a format...
or, if you prefer i can unlock this for someone else...
i'm sorry, i have to go... i'm going to switch to q and a. will be looking for your reply.
