Has anyone had issues with a blocked bile duct or gallbladder post gastric sleeve surgery?

I had gastric sleeve done in January of 2021 and am dealing with some issues.

I hear gallstones and issues with gallbladders are common after WLS. I had issues with my gallbladder before my WLS, though. I had one gallstone at the neck of my gallbladder, so I wasn't blocked or anything, but that one stone was making it hard for bile to pass through, causing a lot of pain.

Did they give you something like Urso to help with GB issues post WLS? Unfortunately, I was given that medication and still needed my GB removed 3 years later.

An unfortunate side effect of rapid weight loss such as is usually experienced after weight loss surgery is the formation of gallstones. Some sources say that gallstone formation can be found in as many as 35% of weight loss surgery patients.
