Gallstone pain after gallbladder removed 3years ago.

When I fell pregnant, I got gallstones. 2 months after I had my child, I got my gallbladder removed. Now it's 3 years after my operation and I still get gallstone pain. I've had numerous ultrasounds to check if the surgeon had missed any gallstones that could be in the bile duct, but they found nothing. I had an ERCP to cut the end of the bile duct because a specialist I saw said that it could be the bile duct spasming, that didn't fix the problem.
One time when I went to the ED, they did routine blood tests, and the nurse told me that my liver function tests were that of an alcoholic that has been drinking everyday for 30 years. I'm only 21 and this is having a big impact on my life. Has anyone else had the same, or similar problems after a gallbladder removal? Any advice would be appreciated.
Cheers.

I doubt the gallbladder issue had anything to do with this. You should see a liver specialist immediately.

My liver functions are always fine, except when I get the pain that feels exactly like gallstone pain, that's when my liver functions are through the roof :/

Just because it feels the same doesn't mean it is the same. If it were me, I'd head to a liver specialist ASAP to find otu what was going on.
