I need some guidance please. As I have written before I have gone through about 4 stent placements through ERCPs since last November. I just had my last stent removed probably less than a month ago and I am struggling again with pain, nausea and all. I am also having alot of pain all up and down my left side. My Internal Medicine Doc is sending me for another ultrasound Wednesday to look at the tail of the pancreas. I think he is looking for a cyst. In the meantime, I called Dr. Kahaleh at UVA to tell him about my continued problems and he is setting up for me to see Dr. Brayman who does the cell inslet surgery. I truly do not believe I am ready for this. I do not have diabetes and do not know if I want to go through something so invasive yet. I do fight constantly with attacks and pain but am totally afraid of the sugeries I have researched for the pancreas. I guess it won't hurt to talk to him at least. I am so frustrated, concerned and confused. I guess, as all of us do, I am wondering why me when I have always been so active and healthy all my life. What happened!!!?
