after gallbladder removed/ducts leaked not having pain

Hi, I had my gallbladder removed in July and it didn't go so well. The ducts did not seal and leaked into abdomin and infected & I was in hospital for 2 months. Ihad to have drains inserted into my abdomin to drain the bile. Shortly after that in October I had a cyst removed and a hyterectomy. For the past 3-4 days I havebeen having pain under my right side ribs and radiating into my back; it feels like spasms that I used to get when i had a gallbladder attack. Maybe it's the ducts or my liver....I guess my question is should I be extremely alarmed; could it be another gallbladder 'cause I've heard of that. I have a docs appoint in 1 week but was wondering if there is anything i can do...Thank you

Based upon your symptoms, you could have another bile leak, or a gallstone stuck in your bile ducts (or a stricture/scar of the bile duct).

You should seek help from a GI doctor.
