I had a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in April 2011. Things went fairly well, but I still have some abdominal pain and nausea. Three weeks after the surgery I had a C.T.Scan. My real question is in regards to the report of the C.T. Scan that I received:
"Contracted intrahepatic gallbladder with a thickened wall, calcified gallstone, and evidence of extrahepatic biliary postsurgical change. Findings likely represent changes from chronic cholecyst
It seems to me that they are talking about the condition of my gallbladder which is impossible because it was removed in surgery three weeks before the C.T. Scan. It does not make sense to me.
I have tried to obtain information or clarification of this statement without success for several months. A friend of mine who is a "resident surgeon" told me that it sounds to him like they did not successfully remove all of my gallbladder. Could this be possible? Does it happen frequently? Could this be causing some of my problems? What now???
Thanks in advance for your help.
