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???
