Salivary Gland Ductal Stenosis (Bartholin's or Wharton's Duct?)

Hello, has anyone experienced a blocked sublingual gland/duct due to stenosis? I have had escalating pain, inflammation, obstruction and recurring infection of my left submandular (and sublingual) gland (swelling to lower left neck/throat) since the beginning of this year. I had a sialendoscopy done in July (post op diagnosis ampullary ductal stenosis and sialenditis) and a stent placed which did not work. My left submandular gland was removed last month and this also did not resolve the issue. Still having the same amount of pain and discomfort after eating or drinking anything (certain foods and drinks more immediate) and having to manually drain the duct/gland afterwards. Not sure what is going on with all this, but just wondering, do the bartholin's and associated salivary gland ducts normally drain into the wharton's duct and this is why I continue to have the same disabling symptoms due to stenosis of (wharton's) duct?

Would sincerely appreciate if anyone has any information, guidance, or past history on this.

Thanks in advance.
