I am having my gall bladder removed and 3 stones from the bile duct by open surgery on the 28th oct. After reading these posts I am now terrifed. I suppose I was lucky I did not suffer much pain at all, although I was very ill my liver was not working, sickness and fever with riggours also had gone yellow but had been on holiday so I thought it was my tan!. (I thought I had a virus I could not shake). My doctor rang me at work asked me to come and see him urgently. (doc thought I had kidney infection). I saw liver cons next day and had mri scan followed by ERCP. he told me I would have been dead in 2 weeks due to infection. I was in hospital for a week. Stones could not be moved and a stent was put in. Had another ECRP 1 month later stones still there and again would not budge. (this was in july). Since the second ERCP i have been in pain regularly. I had no idea you could still get stones after the removal of the gall bladder, as mine are in the bile duct I am now wondering if this operation is worthwhile. Can anybody let me know if they have had this op recently and how it went? Thanks
