gallblader removed, have stone in my bile duct after unsuccessful EGD
Gallbladder was removed this June, then I had stones in my bile duct. I had two EGD operations. But still have bile duct stones after two unsucceful EGDs. I have heavy jaundice and my skin is itching. I think my EGD was unsuccessful. Last operation was 4 days ago. Please advice!

Bile duct stones can be diagnosed with an MRCP or ERCP.  The latter test may be needed to actually remove any obstructing stones.  

If the jaundice continues, I would discuss the aforementioned tests with your GI physician.  

The EGD that you mentioned will not address biliary duct stones.

Thank you for the quick response.

Can you recomend the best clinics for my procedures? Money is not an issue. I would prefer any clinic in Europe as I live in Armenia, it is closer to me.
