Please make sure that the ERCP with done WITH a manometry component. Many facilities are unable to do it (docs aren't trained or they don't have the equipement), but it's a very necessary part of the procedure. If the ductal pressures aren't high, the sphincter at the opening of the common bile duct at the duodenum should NOT be cut. Many docs routinely cut that sphincter and if the pressures aren't high it can cause problems down the line. Please talk to your doc and find out if manometry is going to be part of that test.
Thanks for the comment. I actually have to go to another gi specialist because mine doesn't do this procedure. He is sending me to a specialist he knows that is supposably very good at it. I am I don't know kind of worried because I am I guess more tired of this than anything. Ready to feel better. Have you had this procedure done?
I have not had any condition that would require the procedure.
