    Yes my ALT is 140, im in constant pain and have had ultrasound, gastroscope, ct scan all of which showed nothing. I have been in alot of pain and the only drug ive taken that helps is codeine phospate but i dont want to be taking that forever.

    I recently had a HIDA scan which showed my gallbladder wasnt sectreting bile. I now wait to see what happens from here.

    I was told i had pancreatic cancer, trapped wind, stomach ulcer, gallstones, kidney stones, pulled muscle, anxiety. was also told my bloods were all in normal range, it was only when i checked myself that i saw they had been abnormal for over a year!

    Ask for the HIDA scan. ERCP can cause further complications. HIDA is non invasive and will show if you have biliary microlithiasia or any blockages that wont show up on other tests.

    good luck.

    I had my gall bladder removed at the end of March this year.  On June 31st I ended up with severe pain in the same up right quadrant under my rib and radiating to my back.  It was the second time since my Cholesesectomy.  I had my NP run a liver panel (Thursday).  On Friday my urine was brown red and on Saturday a.m. I went to the ER with a Liver Enzyme of 5.  They kept me in the hospital FIVE days and did an ERCP, finding nothing.  I have done a parasitical cleansing and have had no issues since the last one.  Reading on this blog I hope it was the last as I WILL NOT return to ER.  I think we over produce bile and this is the problem and don't think they can do a thing about it.  Just my opinion.  I pray it doesn't happen again.

      They take you into the operating room, sedate you and put a tube down your throat to look at your liver (in my case). Β They can see in your ducts to see if you have stones causing problems.
