Upper Ab pain and caly color stool, losing wait still, and normal blood work

had new blood work ordered, still presenting with clay color stool  and upper ab pain, waiting on new GI to do a colonoscopy but symptoms still look like some kind of blockage of my bile.  And the mrcp shows 10 mm dilation with possible minimal irregularily in my intrahepatic ducts.  why is my bood work normal yet I am so sick????? and not yellow, so doc doesn't think there is a block  I REALLY thought he would have done an ERCP last week. He even told me not to run back to hospital but at this rate I may have to, not well.

Hi, with dilated biliary radicles if there is no jaundice there is unlikely to be an obstruction. The altered stool consistency could be due to indigestion. Low grade gastrointestinal infections can cause the symptoms described by you. Have a stool culture done, if the stool culture showed a growth it is an infective pathology otherwise non infective pathologies like inflammatory bowel diseases or growths have to be considered. The colonoscopy may help detect these lesions. Good luck with your therapy. Regards.
