Hello, krigby37,
You say that you had gallstone pancreatitis in 2011 and had surgey
for removal of gallbladder. You state that you had retained stone
in your common bile duct and that was taken care of.
I don't think your hernia is responsible for the symtoms of itching.
I have a feeling that you may have developed scar tissue around the
end of the bile duct, called stricture due to inflammation. It is
possible you may have another small stone stuck in the duct that was
not removed or reformed. If you start having fever, chills, passing
dark urine (Orange ) that is a sign of problem with the duct. You
may need hospitalization , intravenous antibiotics and perhaps a
procedure called ERCP where th specialist will introduce a scope through
the stomach into the duodenum and inject dye to look at the bile duct
and also pancreatic duct. If ther is stricture, they can dilate or strech it
and sometimes placing a stent to keep it open and relieve blockage.
You need to have additional blood tests including complete liver tests,
complete blood count etc.
Hope this answers your concerns and you can contact your doctor to
discuss these and get the tests done.
