the surgeon removed the stent, and stone, and also his gallbladder, but he was in
a lot of pain
, and the op lasted for 4 hours. now, 4 weeks later he has a lot of pain in
his left shoulder
, which his doctor has no idea what is causing it. we gather from your posts that this is probably trapped wind, but it has been 4 weeks since his operation. we wonder how long this will take to resolve itself, as we are getting no help elsewhere!
