I hope you won’t mind me asking but with a benign narrowed hepatic duct, high up in the liver would you operate even though it is difficult or do a transplant if the person has been in severe pain for 19 years? I know a narrowed hepatic duct may not cause a change in blood tests. Can people have cholangitis without it effecting their blood tests?
