Epigastric pain: pain which persists after a cholecystectomy can have many causes. It could still be related to the bile duct, if there is a retained stone. However, it could also be related to the stomach, duodenum, esophagus, pancreas, and rarely other organs such as the heart. A visit to your doctor or to a Gastroenterologist could go along way toward solving the problem. Good luck.
