Biliary Duct Obstruction & Roux en Y Gastric Bypass

Posted by josephpreid @josephpreid, Mar 22 4:38pm

After a routine blood test, I was diagnosed with high liver enzymes. Fast forward to an ED visit, overnight hospital stay for observation, and being told my local hospital can't remove the 3 stones in my biliary duct because of my Roux en Y gastric bypass. I'm waiting on an appointment with a sub-specialist at another local hospital for treatment.

I'm curious if anyone has encountered biliary duct obstructions and how their procedure to remove them after gastric bypass went.

I had my gallbladder removed many years prior to Roux en Y gastric bypass surgery due to gallstones.

Just wondering if they stones are gallstones ?


Not sure. I had my gallbladder removed AFTER my Roux en Y gastric bypass. The doctors said since my gallbladder was inflamed at the time of removal and how long ago it was removed, there may be leftover gallstones. I guess I'll know after they're removed.
