I had my gallbladder removed when i was 16. I am now 24 and still have sever attacks, and have been in the ER many times. I am seeing a specialist that thinks i may still have stones, but my question is, with no gallbladder, how do i have stones? I even had a second surgery about 4 months after the original one, to enlarge my common bile duct because they assumed some stones had been left behind. I hate having this pain, it is identical to what i was feeling before they removed the gallbladder. So what am i supposed to do now?
