Enlarged Bile Duct
I am not sure to put this under "gallbladder" because I have not had one for over 30 yrs. I have upper right quadrant pain and extreme bloating of the abdomen. An ultra sound showed something different about the bile duct and a C.T. scan showed the bile duct was quite enlarged but no stone or anything. No one seems to know what this is all about but now I am being refered to gastroenterology.
I was not nervous at 1st but now I am getting worried. I am a 61 yr old woman

Fudgen, in many people the bile duct is found to be enlarged after gallbladder removal, although no one knows why. However, there are also cases in which there can be changes that are not that simple, so it's a good idea that you're getting it checked out. And keep in mind that a CT scan isn't the greatest if they're going to look for things like sludge and stones which can develop months to years after having a GB removed.
