This being the common bile ducts? I have a stone right now and I'm in pain but reading everyone's problems I'm thinking I'll tough it out for awhile. My stone is 11mm and sounds like it should be able to make it through if the ducts can expand that much
Hi dilated bile ducts usually indicate a distal obstruction. It could be a structure or growth at the ampulla, where the common bile duct empties into the intestines. Your doctor may advise an MRCP - a specialized version of a MRI which does not give you any radiation exposure. Your surgeon needs to know about your symptoms. Regards.
My primary care doctor says the bile duct narrowed back down to normal size. He says the CT scan showed dilation but no blockage. He wants me to wait 3-4 weeks and see if my liver levels get better or not. If they do not he wants to do a liver biopsy. It sounds like he does not think this is anything to do with my gallbladder surgery 5 months ago. I think I will call my surgeon and just let him know what is going on. Thank you!
