    Yes.  I do.  I had several ERCPs as I am generating a large amount of gallstones even though I had my gallbladder surgically rev=moved more than 30 years ago.  This large amount of gallstones started after they did a small incision to allow gallstones to pass through the bile duct.  Given that I am generating large amount of stones, the decision was to put 2 stents in.  We have been replacing them every 3 months and every time, there was some 10 gallstones or so.  I had one done 10 days ago.  What is the frequency that you have been changing the stents and are there any gallstones found when they change the stents?  If so, do you know how many?  Finally, have they recommended any other alternatives ?  

    We did plenty of tests.  No root cause was found.  No other alternatives has yet been identified except changing stents regularly.

      Hi Natalie wow that's awful I'm scared as I never had this and any organ that failed wasn't a scheduled appointment for me . Had my tonsils out as a kid then emergency appendix busted in me . My family doctor just retired July 31 2016 . I have fibromyalgia chronic pain from 2 car accidents and I slipped at a grocery store slipped disc bulged disc and it pinched the nerve in my left leg . Today I have burning feeling now in my back my ribs on left side hurt and I feel like something in left side like a mass or something hanging in there upper pins and needles no chest pain but sore but I did sit in the hospital 14 straight hours solid crippling pain it got to the point of where I couldn't walk to them when they called my name and they did nothing except wait until I was at the point of shaking cold hot felt nausea so they gave me z shot for pain told me go home ultrasound dept closed have to come back tomorrow that's when they said 8 hours later waiting for results multiple mobile gallstones
