The pancreas is a very sensitive organ most doctors are afraid of doing anything in or even aroung the duct leading to the pancreas. You should have your sister go to her G.I. doc or get one who is very good & comfortable doing ERCP. They can go down with a scope & try to remove the stone if it is in the duct. I am not to sure if they will go into the pancreas or not. I had a gallstone removed from my bile duct & I indured pancreatitis after this procedure. But my doc told me that they don't like to mess with the pancreas. Hope this can help your sister.
