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

I was told i would not need digestive enzymes/bile salts after gallbladder removal...Why then do naturopaths promote taking them? What is best?

Yes but will resolve: After gallbladder surgery, some people have ongoing abdominal symptoms, such as pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea (postcholecystectomy syndrome).

I got a stent install in biliary canal after gallbladder removal , i want to be asleep for my ERCP to remove it but it can take up 60 days..Dangerous?
Straightforward: Don't worry. While any procedure can have complications, this one is low risk (not zero...). I would be more worried about the reason the stent is there, and whether or not a stricture (narrowing from scar) will develop afterwards. You may want to ask that. I'm sure they will give you adequate sedation for the procedure. Hope this helps! ...Read more

If it is 8 cm it is very unsusual and likely would need open surgery.If it is 8 mm then a gastroenterologist should be able to remove it with ercp. Is it causing symptoms or problems?
