Not enough info: Without seeing the actual ultrasound or at least the ultrasound report, it would be difficult to figure out what is meant by a "shadow" in your pancreas or liver. It is possible that they could have meant that you have a stone in your bile duct, but your surgeon will be sure to check for that in the proper setting. If you have the report itself, consider a consult on HealthTap Prime or Concierge.
