    Get your gallbladder out. You will be in a better healthier world. I did I'm so happy to eat again. Please don't suffer anymore. You and Rosemary both need this surgery.

    Hi they suspect a blockage in the bile duct which is the reason for the camera thing down me, I'm hoping they take the gallbladder out I've been in and out of pain since March and it's getting to the point I can't take much more

      Ok that's right. ERCP is a procedure to remove lodged stonesbin bile ducts. I want to warn you . In 95 percent of these surgeries the patient will have pancreatitis. Because bile backs up into pancreas. But you will be fine. Good Luck to you.

      Hi . That is the norm. The pancreatitis is not a permanent outcome. Over a few months you will heal and you will be a new person. The Dr explained it all. Keep your head up for a healthier life.

    sorry to hear of your discomfort,i was in agony,couldnt even walk,i had the ultra sound scan that picked up a large stone trapped in  the duct, even tho ive always eaten healthy foods, they said my gb was in a bad state,hence gb out by key hole surgery, sent home next day, if you have gb out you must take it easy,no lifting etc,    hope all goes well for you, if gb not right, have it out, it only gets worse,
