Complex problem: sounds like a complex problem, if you've required three ERCP's and an MRCP to help diagnose it. Without more information on what was actually found during the ERCP's, it is difficult to comment further about what could be going on. I would return to your gastroenterologist for better explanations, or post more results here if you have them. Good luck.
