    Reading your symptoms and diagnosis of stones caught in the bile duct is the same pain I had . I had stones stuck in bile duct and it was over a couple of years . After many false diagnosis and rib, shoulder and shoulder blade pain hardly could breathe the pain was excruciating . I get how badly the pain is....have you any pain meds? I finally had the GB removed. Don't let it go too long can cause further complications if left untreated. See on line patient forum for further info. 

    Take care are and I hope this can be resolved for you soon.

    A gall bladder problem can give a pain I believe in the shoulder. Have you read all there is to know re the technical research documents especially from the USA where it says that a low fat diet can also cause gall stones due to the inactivity of the bile stagnating.

    They said that those taking ursodioxycholic acid tablets on the course did not have formation of gall stones.

    This was in conjunction with the research into the dissolving of gall stones with Ursodioxycholic acid.

    This chemical method does work for some =most definitely. Some gastroenterologists surpisingly have never heard of it but three chemists I questioned said 'of course urso dissolves gall stones'.

    I find the fact that all those specializing in digestive problems in humans are not fully conversant with every single aspect of their speciality and that of course includes the ursodioxycholic dissolution of gall stones of type thereby avoiding an operation which always involves risks.
