    Has anyone heard of gallstones returning? A friend has had her gallbladder out but says she is having symptoms similar to what she had before her gallbladder was removed. I don't specialize in GI, so I was wondering if anyone knew if gallstones could come back? Could they lodge in the bile ducts maybe. I know this is not a medical board, but I was curious.

    yes, they can comeback or occur in the bile duct. An ERCP can be preformed to get rid of the stones.
