I am not sure I will ever feel the same way after I had a persistent bile leak from a lapchole that was done June 2019. This leak resulted in 2 stents being placed and a biloma. August 2019 I was scheduled to remove the metal stent but the GI could not find it. He said I must have pooped it out. He did an xray to confirm. The entire summer and fall I have had discomfort and pain where my gallbladder was. 2 weeks ago I went to the ER for pain and they ordered and ultrasound. The report came back there was a stent in my common bile duct. I could not believe what I was hearing. I called my GI the next day and he told me to go back to the hospital so he can remove it. They ordered another ultrasound and again the report showed a stent. The GI then ordered last minute a KUB before he performed the ERCP. The nurse comes back and says the GI has cancelled everything the KUB shows nothing. He never came to my room to explain what is going on.
I ordered my medical records to see the images on ultrasound and the KUB. The ultrasound clearly shows a stent and the KUB shows several clips from the surgery. I do not have any confidence with my GI anymore.
Has anyone had anything similar? Can anyone provide insight?
