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?
