Hi.
Staples should have been removed years ago, it is not normal to leave them
He should have explained why he left them
Good Luck

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

It is a common practice to use titanium clips to close cystic ducts and artery while having gallbladder removal and they are easily left in place..
It is not a wrong practice..
So do not worry about it but once consult a Physician for evaluation of your x ray..

Hope this helps..

One more thing that I would like to add is that please tell the reason for getting x ray done?
