User :   I have gallstones. There was some infection therefore I had to wait. Now 2 stones had passed into Bile Duct which I got removed through ECRP. They have put those stones in stomach. Now I am supposed to get my Gall Bladder removed however after doing my ultra sound, there is one more stone which has passed in bileduct. I am confused and worried what to do. Doctors say they will remove Gall Bladder and they have already put some cut in CBD therefore that stone will pass from there automatically. Which I am not sure. Please advice.
