In brief: Narcotic affect duct

I agree with dr. Heller that your anesthesiologist be infomed to the fullest extent regarding your medical history.
Be aware that some narcotics given pre- and post-operatively have been shown to affect biliary function and contractility, and may therefore promote biliary spasm (and in so doing at least temporarily exacerbate your biliary dyskinesia).

In brief: Shouldn't

Unlikely to have any direct or indirect effect; mention to your anesthesiologist though.

In brief: Narcotic effect

Virtually all opioid can cause spasm of the biliary drainage system. Ask your surgeon and anesthesiologist about regional anesthesia techniques that can minimize the amount of opioid needed.
You may be an candidate for a number of techniques.
