Abd Pain: It would be interesting to know if you have retained stones in the bile duct. This could be suggested by ultrasound and demonstrated by mrcp.If symptoms are related to eating (worsened or initiated by eating) then consideration of retained stone(s) is greater. Pancreatitis, ulcer disease, gastroenteritis, intestinal spasm are included in differential.
