@contentandwell I am at home now building up strength for the 2nd attempt at the ERCP procedure. If this goes well then I can be on the road to recovery. 🤞🤞 fingers crossed!

@contentandwell I will be rescheduled for another ERCP once I recover from the last attempt.

@rosemarya Hello Rosemary. I am in and out of bed. I walk a lot on my own. So my mobility is really good.
It would be lovely to talk with you in person. I am content though just knowing you are there cheering me on.
I never did hear anything more from parmcat.
Thank uou for the great resources to talk.
Hopefully I will have better news on my next post. I'll be in hospital a few days yet.

@rosemarya @contentandwell @jeanne5009 Since my last post I've had the ERCP procedure (scope to insert stent to unblock bile duct) and it failed. They managed to rattle my pancreas which ended up with me having pancreatitis. The symptons being severe nausea, vomiting and pain. I was unable to hold anything down including my immunosuppresents and other meds. I've been back in hospital since last Thursday waiting for this to be resolved. I will be scheduled for another ERCP to try and get the stent in again. 🤞🤞that it works this time and that I don't get pancreatitis again. Hopefully soon I'll be on the right track. I WILL SURVIVE! Lol…new mantra.

@rosemarya Hi Rosemary. Well after the 3 surgeries last month I'm back to hospital again tomorrow morning. Numbers are trending too high again and they believe blocked bile ducts are the reason this time. I looked into this and apparently almost 50% of liver transplant patients go through the same thing. I am just sharing my experiences so that others can be aware that once the transplant is done there can be all sorts of complications. Some people will have none. So far angioplast, artery repair, type 2 diabetes and blocked bile ducts have been on my list. Every stage is a step forward though.

@godlygal …I can not stress enough that your partner address his alcohol consumption. Believe me, I know how hard it is to talk sense to a drinker. This is no easy task. You will need help with this. He will not be considered for a transplant without being at least 6 months alcohol free. I think stressing life without alcohol over death is a much happier scenario. Please, please try to enlist help.
