pain continues after gallbladder surgery

I had my surgery on 12/10/2013.  The pain was GONE until about 5 days later.  I feel like the surgery didn't fix a thing.  I am still experiencing the HORRID paid I had before.  And it's by FAR worse after I eat.  It lasts for about 4 hours and so many times I feel like visiting an ER but I don't.  Any suggestions?

Hi, the commonest cause for persisting pain after gallbladder surgery is persisting stone in the common bile duct. Please consult your surgeon to rule out this. You may need an ERCP to detect this. Regards.
