Treatment for my choledochal cysts was removal of gallbladder and bile duct. Repaired with Roux-en-Y loop to allow bile to drain directly into the stomach. This was done 35 years ago.

My treatment for choledochal cyst was surgery, gallbladder removal and creating a passage to liver. It is in a precarious spot, affecting the pancreas as well. Jaundice and abdominal pain were the precursors.

Doctors did open surgery for my choledochal cysts because they had to scrape under and behind the liver, drain pipe, remove gallbladder, scrape the entire common bile duct, half of the pancreas and had to take out my small intestines to scrape and then put them all back in. They also created a duct from the liver to the pancreas – can’t recall what's it called.
