Customer Question
I recently had ct-abdomen-pelvis....
I recently had ct-abdomen-pelvis. Under the Narrative it has Cholecystectomy clips. Does that mean anything? I had a gall bladder operation about 10 years ago. I have always said I think they left something in me. I have pain in my right side most of the time.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Cholecystectomy clips means the clips used during surgery to stop bleeding and leakage of bile after removing your gallbladder.
This is a common procedure leaving behind the clips.
They are not supposed to causse lumps or pain usually.
However, sometimes these clips can cause irritation of the intestine or abdominal cavity lining causing pain.
This is not commo at all.
And another cause should be looked for with a colonoscopy and upper Gi endoscopy.
Ulcer disease should be ruled out for example.
Please see a gastroenterologist for endoscopies.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
