From the description you have given it seems that the stone in the CBD is impacted. It is dangerous to reattempt endoscopic removal. The safest method would be open surgical exploration of the common bile duct which will not only help in complete clearance of the stone load but also provide a opportunity to carry out a prophylactic surgical procedure in order to prevent the condition from recurring (biliary enteric anastomosis) depending upon the actual size of the CBD as observed during surgery.
