Re: Surgical clips from gallbladder surgery

Having a plastic clip in place after gallbladder surgery is normal. Mine can be seen in abdominal CTs and it should be there...but not down in the pelvis..I don't think. Mine is up high close to where the bile duct goes into the digestive system...maybe yours moved?

You can contact the hospital where you had the surgery and request the surgical report to see where it was initially...or have your primary do it. But whatever it was holding has probably healed long ago.

But it really shouldn't be causing your pain....it's just an inert piece of surgical grade plastic.

I'd put money on the hemangioma for the pain. Hemangiomas are tumors that arise from a tiny bit of the placenta(like 1 cell) left behind as we form in utero. Sometimes they just start growing. They are benign and will often stop growing and just go away by themselves. There is more danger in removing them than leaving them alone so most docs leave them alone. But they can and do hurt.
