What do you suggest if i had my gallbladder out a month ago, but i still have stones to be removed via ercp, can I be normal after?
Ercp required: Once the gall bladder is removed and residual stones noted, the probable location is in the common duct system, the duct draining bile from liver to the GI tract. The gb is the storage area where stones can form and if they drop out of the gb into the common duct they can cause future problems. Removal by trans oral ERCP is indicated with minimal complications where one will return to normal. ...Read more

In the case of suspected active acute or chronic pancreatitis, do the doctors normally perform ERCP?
Absolutely: ERCP is a test that gives a picture of the "pancreatic duct", which is a tube that drains fluid from the pancreas into the intestines. Blockage of this duct often causes pancreatitis and the ERCP test is designed to show what is wrong. In some cases the ERCP can also relieve a blockage, leading to improvement in the pancreatitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal to still have pseudocysts even after 6mths from having serious pancreatitis from ercp, gallbladder removed 2mths ago, still having pain?
Probably not...: Its probable that your pancreatitis predated the ercp, & that the exam was performed to better characterize the disease. Ercp-associated pancreatitis seldom causes chronic pancreatitis, which sounds like what you describe. If this is indeed the case, talk to your doctor (who best knows your history & risks) about your next course of action. Please of course avoid any alcohol intake. Good luck to u. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just had an ERCP about 7 hours ago and I woke up from a nap with diarrhea and cramps by my liver. Is this normal after this type of procedure?
Not usual: This is not usual after an ercp and the cramping discomfort is probably due to intestinal activity related to the diarrheal movements and not due to liver inflammation. Nevertheless it's best to notify the gastroenterologist who performed your procedure if the discomfort persists,especially if it worsens or if abdominal tenderness,vomiting or fever is present. For mild diarrhea avoid harsh roughag ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
