I have just been told I have sludge in the lumen the BCD dilated to 1.5 CM after gall bladder removal will this mean more surgery please?
Not Necessarily: Increasing size of the Common Bile Duct is normal after having your gallbladder removed. Unless you are having recurrent symptoms, I don't think you need surgery. You may need to have an upper endoscopy to open the valve so the sludge can be drained easier from the duct. That will be up to you, your symptoms and your surgeon/endoscopist. ...Read more

These can be confirmed with a test called an mrcp and removed with a procedure called an ercp. If your symptoms are minor these could probably be watched. Move forward with ERCP if pain, nausea or jaundice worsens. ...Read more

Gallbladder U/S: This sounds like a normal report. Echo free means no stones or polyps were seen. No bile duct dilation is normal. Gallbladder distention can be normal (it fills with bile then contracts to release the bile with meals). Of course, the report should be interpreted by the ordering physician, taking into account your symptoms that led to it being ordered in the first place. ...Read more
