What can I expect after ercp?

Quick Recovery. Most patients experience only a small amount of pain and bloating in the immediate recovery period. The procedure is generally tolerated very well. Some people with have a sore throat, nausea or vomiting and a very small number will develop pancreatitis as a result of the procedure, but this complication is relatively unlikely.
Ercp. Usually just some bloating. But this is a dangerous test. 10% get pancreatitis, and one in 500 die from it. Make sure there is a really good reason to do it.
