Thanks for writing to us.
An acute pain due to impacted calculus in CBD is often unbearable. It usually needs an indoor treatment with fluids and intravenous antibiotics. You need to consult your physician for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

A MRCP would determine if the stone is there in the CBD or not . If there is a stone impacted in the bile duct- you need to undergo ERCP ASAP.
