I'm now 3 months post-op. Still can have a pain/pressure in my rib cage, chest and back after I eat (very low fat diet)
I had an MRI of the liver, pancreas, common duct area (MRCP) and the surgeon said it came back 'strongly suggestive of stones in the common bile duct'. I was disappointed that the pictures didn't show stones definitely instead of a mystery. I now have a consultation with a GI guy about a procedure called ECRP. I looked it up and it actually seems scarier than having the gallbladder out.
Has anyone had this ECRP test/procedure for possible stones in the duct? What to expect? Was it successful, i.e., can you eat normally now without pain/pressure, etc.?
