Hi doctor i was wondering how long does it take for a person to become jaundice after the bile ducts are blocked?

In brief: Bile ducts

It depends on the reason for the blockage.
If a bile duct becomes completely occluded abruptly, jaundice will occur within 1 to 2 days, but the length of time would vary greatly if the process slowly occludes the bile duct. Good luck.
