“I also had my gall bladder removed after suffering with debilitating pain between my shoulder blades. Once I recognized that the pain usually came after certain meals I offered that info to my Dr. who ordered and ultra sound test. I had the gall bladder removed back in 1993 but have recently (within the past 6 months) experienced the same awful pain between my shoulder blades. I was told by a friend (with no medical experience) that I might actually have a gall stone in the ducts that are left behind after surgery. I had never heard of this before. It certainly was never mentioned by my doctor. Does anyone out there have any experience with this? How can I find out for sure if it’s a stone causing all this pain? Another ultra sound? and then surgery?
