I had a niessen funduplation done and at the same time had my gallbladder removed. It's now 18 months and I'm still having dr said it's just stomach spasms but they will go away. Still having them. I have seen three different doctors who are saying it's my gallbladder.then I tell them it was removed. The last dr finally is running New test. I just had a upper GI done but the xray that took are not showing and clips. He said a gallbladder will not show on xray but they clips would but he is not seeing them..says I need to have an ultrasound done to check. Since this surgery was done laparoscopy could the doctor removed something else instead of my gallbladder? Like an apendix?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Either the clips would be dissolvable like magnesium alloy clips or they would have been embedded in liver tissue.Ultrasonography will clear the picture.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
