Had surgery last Tuesday. Didn't get home on same day as I expected to do. I was very sick afterwards and had horrendous headache. As the week as gone on I am doing well apart from having no energy whatsoever. My query today is surgeon questioned that there was a possibility there maybe a stone still stuck in there I can't remember what duct she said. I was half asleep. I am now waiting on a appointment for a MRI scan . Has anyone else had this problem. I know she said my cystic duct was dilated .

    Sorry I can't help with that but the no energy I understand. I had my follow up last week after my surgery and the dr says it's normal to have low energy. I wish you the best in your MRI. Keep me updated please. You'll be in my prayers.

    Hi 

    I had surgery 16 days ago, the headache is normal smile its a side effect of the anesthesia. If the surgeon thought it was the duct going into the liver you wouldnt normally have been sent home at all. Hopefully its nothing to be too worried about best of luck on your recovery

    Dumb question for you all who are on the other side of the operation. Is it customary for surgeon to check all ducts after GB is out and. before closing you up?

      It was mentioned to me that they would do a check by running a fluid through the ducts to check. As far as I  know nothing found as I have not seen the surgeon after the op and they do not do any follow ups in my part of the UK.

      ​If anything is supsected I guess they will scan and then remove any rogue stones by another prodedure ercp or mrcp/ - a sort of endoscopy. I have not had one so cannot elaborate.
