Surgical Clips

I had my gallbladder removed 11 years ago, and continued to have pain.  I have had several ultrasounds, been admitted to hospital for pain management etc.  I had an xray done last week for a different reason and found that I have clips in my abdomen.  I know it is normal to have 2 closed clips in order to seal off the biliary duct.  But to the right of 2 clips I have three open surgical clips just left there.  They are open and not serving a purpose.   Do you think this could be the cause of my pain?
