Post transplant issues: Pancreatitis, Blocked bile duct, ERCP
You give me hope the end may be in sight. You have endured a lot. The hospital stays really suck and I dread them. Usually I'm so hyped up on pain meds that at least most of its a blur lol..

Mine too is for a blocked bile duct. I am not sure what eactly causes it but they explained it as a sludge backup. They had me on ursidiol for awhile to help keep sludge from building up. However they doubled my dose before my ERCP in February which caused me to have a severe itching equivalent to itch when my liver went bad. Shots of benadryl stopped working as i was hospitalized. Thats when they dicovered it was the large dose of Ursidiol making me itch. Hang in there and I hope these get easier for you.
