Blocked bile duct

I had my gallbladder out 1998.  Then in 2002 I was hospitalized with what was called probable bile duct blockage.  I am now spilling billirubin in the urine.  I am also on medication for depression since I have fibromalgia.  I also take advil between 400mg to 600mgs. daily.  Could the medication be the cause or could there be a deeper problem.  I am taking EffexorXL 225 mgs.

Have your biliary system re-checked. It is possible to form stones long after removal of the gallbladder. It is also possible that you could be experiencing spasms of the common bile duct or sphincter. You may want to consider an MRCP.

In addition, you need to discuss the use of all your medications and the possibility that the combination could be causing problems with your liver with your doc.
