Transduodenal Sphincteroplasty

Hi,

Just wondering if anybody here has had this surgery? If so, can you please share your experience, success, failure, complications, medical presentation etc....

I am looking at this as an option for me (seeing my surgeon again in Jan) as I have had urq pain for the past 3 years. I had my gallbladder out in Dec 09 but nothing improved.... I have been diagnosed with sphincter of oddi dysfunction and a tight bile duct.
I have had a sphincterotomy on the biliary/main sphincter which on all my ercp reports states is open....

I am just wondering, if the sphincterotomy is still keeping things open, would the sphincteroplasty really help??? Or should I be looking at surgery on the duct as well???

I would appreciate any advice you could offer.

Warmest regards

Sarsi
