I have been having ongoing pain in my right upper quadrant where my gallbladder used to be. It was removed in 2013 and the pain started shortly afterward.
I put it down to phantom pains, then hernia pains and then hernia repair pains but it has just gotten worse.
Over the last 2 yrs my liver enzymes started to rise (3xs normal) and then an MRI showed it to be 50% larger than normal.
Enter a very kind gastroenterologist (my first in 30yrs) who did an ultrasound with his brand new 3D machine that showed a cyst (tiny) and nothing else.
He believes that something is blocking the duct and that my liver is not emptying but building more and more bile that is backing up.
Next week, they are doing an endoscopic ultrasound (I had never heard of it before) under general anesthetic (not pleased but no choice)...we should have an answer, I hope, after that.
Any of you ever have an endoscopic ultrasound? If so, how did it go? What was found and what was done?
Thanks, I am a bit concerned.
