911Doctor :

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.

911Doctor :

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.

911Doctor :

oh, there you are...

911Doctor :

911Doctor :

911Doctor :

911Doctor :
