      I have had several breast biopsies and each time a small clip was left to show where the biopsy had been. I was notified of this.

      I have a locator clip/marker purposely left in after a lumpectomy. As Lynne-I-Am suggested, she needs to find out if it was done purposely or by mistake. If she has a copy of her surgery report, it should mention it if it was left as a marker.

      Gall bladder? Hmmmm....I had a laparascopic cholecystectomy back in 1994, and the gallbladder is in the upper R quadrant. I remember the surgeon saying I had a "retained gallstone in the common duct" (which I apparently passed 11 yrs. later). Maybe the clip was from way back then, to mark the location of the stone?
