The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct.

Gallbladder us shows 5mm soft tissue fullness with adjacent wall thickness no stone or sludge. Normal thickness and bile duct elsewhere.Do i need to?
Sphincter muscle : At the end of the duct, just at it's entry to the intestine. There is a circular muscle that closes off the duct when bile is not needed to digest foods. Since the liver never stops making bile, it will build up inside the bile ducts and stretch them out when a gallbladder has been removed. A stone could block the duct but will produce symptoms. The stretched open ducts happen without symptoms. ...Read more

The stone passed: If you are otherwise recovering well from gallbladder removal surgery, you can rest assured the inflammation was part of the disease process and nothing more.

Before and after my gallbladder removal my bile duct has been dilated even still a year later, this causes a lot of pain, will this go away itself?
Depends: Ask your doctor how dilated the bile duct is. After gallbladder removal, it is normal to have a slightly enlarged bile duct. Additionally, as you age, your bile duct usually enlarges a bit, usually about 1 mm per 10 years. If you have stones in your bile duct, you certainly need to have this addressed. Finally, proving that your pain is from the dilated bile duct is quite difficult. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

If not then check TSH to see that thyroid is normal and check electrolyes, sodium and potasssium. Take a vitamin suppplement and Iron and get some exercise. It will get better.. ...Read more

What can I expect from GI doc when us shows bile duct dilated at 16mm. My gallbladder was removed 9/28/12. Bile duct was previously 12.9mm. Thank you?
It depends: If you have no symptoms and a stone in the bile duct has been ruled out, you should not have to worry. Common duct often appears slightly dilated after removal of gall bladder. You can also easily follow this up with future ultrasounds to assure that it is stable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gallbladder is contracted and contain multiple echogenic calculi.The common bile duct is 4mm and no filling defect is seen.Please advice me.
Do You Have Pain?: The presence of gallstones in the absence of symptoms does not warrant gallbladder surgery. In fact, most people with "silent" gallstones will never develop symptoms, as high as 75% of the time. I advise my patients to be familiar with the symptoms of gallbladder disease and return if these develop. While surgery is safe and easy, it is not risk-free. ...Read more
