Tuesday I had another ERCP. This time the duct was so small he had to put a stent in to open it up along with making 4 slices in pancreas muscle. It immediately caused pancreatis, my lipids went to 19,000 and the pain was unbearable. I couldn't roll from side to side from the pressure and only could lay on my back.I cried all day Wednesday. Thursday they did another ERCP to take out the stent but it had already fell out. In hospitals you get no sleep because they check this and that. I am home now but I continue to struggle with the pain. One doctor was a bare and didn't want to send me home. Argued with My Dr. and I about going home.Could afford the $ 400.00 a day co-pay so I pretended to feel better even though I was very wobbly to go home.My Dr. was being very passionate about his work and felt bad what the proceedure had done to me. Worried about going back to work. My group has a gig next saturday. I hope I feel better by then.
