Urine and cornia yellow in color after gallbladder attack. Normal or cause of concern?

Urine turned yellow and cornia is yellowish after gallbladder attack. I read response on your website by Dr. Sapan J Pandya that this is expected and should get back to normal in few days. Some other websites suggest that this could be due to passage of gallstone into common bile duct . Can this happen and if so is a cause of concern?

Hello Amod. Thanks for your query.
Did you have an attack of Cholecystitis ? The most common cause of such an attack is presence of a gall stone and it usually doent cause jaundice unless you have cholangitis or as rightly said by you, the stone goes to the common bile duct. So i suggest you undergo Upper abdomen USG to know the exact cause. If the jaundice is due to hepatitis then it get back to normal in a few days. Evaluate your jaundice properly. Go for liver function tests. Take care.
