Dilated common bile and hepatic duct

I had an ultrasound that was normal other than mild dilated Common Bile duct and hepatic duct. The report says the CBD Measured 8mm tapering to 5 mm. I'm going to see a GI. I'm really scared. What would cause this if the ultrasound revealed no stones or masses? I'm on a lot of medications for Lyme.

Re: Dilated common bile and hepatic duct

It could have been previously damaged when a stone passed. Next you need a HIDA Scan to test for function. Also maybe an endoscope as well.I'm sure they will get to the bottom of it.
