Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the most common surgery performed for symptomatic gallstones. However even after surgery, symptoms may persist in some patients. Various causes for such post-cholecystectomy syndrome have been noted. We report our experience of seven such patients with post-cholecystectomy syndrome where on investigations, presence of stone in the biliary tree could be confirmed along with remnant gall-bladder. All these patients underwent completion cholecystectomy with removal of the stones by laparoscopic surgery and had good post-operative result. The patients were followed-up from three months to one year and all were asymptomatic till their last follow-up.
