About 17 years ago I had my gallbladder removed. The path report showed 2-1 inch green colored stones.There is no question it was removed as a physician friend of mine was in the OR observing and I saw the path report. A recent abdominal US -done for another reason showed a gallbladder with a 1 inch stone. This is shaped like a normal gallbladder but is about 1/2 the size of a normal one. It is obviously not the common bile duct which is clearly visualized. I saw the scan myself and 2 radiologists agree. Of interest is a scan I had done in 2006 in another state for my complaint of "feels like I still have gallstones". US and CT at that time reads"status post cholecystecyomy 2.6 x2 cm anechoic area in the region of the gallbladder fossa"-"post cholecystectomy surgical change. Any ideas of how this occurred and what to do.
