Pain persisting after gall bladder removal. Stone in the bile duct. Will the pain subside?

I had my gallbladder removed 12/11 I had just had a baby 10/11 I had been sick for 2 years before the procedure. I was still in pain after the surgery for several months; the pain stopped and returned in 10/12 I went for an ercp 2 days ago and a golf ball size stone was found in my bile duct . I am still in a lot of pain that is shooting up my chest and my neck I was told I can return to work the next day and I would be fine. Im not taking anything for pain but was wondering should I go back to the hospital or will the pain eventually subside

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It should subsde if there is no stone anymore and if there wasntoermanent bile duct damage. So just be patient for several weks and see will there be improvement. If not, you will ned repeat ERCP to verify the exact diagnosis.
Wish you good health. Regards
