Sounds like you did good. Keep it up and keep us posted.February 19, 2014 at 1:47 am #79661lainyParticipant
YEA! Now don’t try to fix anything in the hospital and for heaven’s sake stay off the roof! I hope you feel better quickly!February 19, 2014 at 1:43 am #79660
Procedure done. A little sore at the entry point where it goes through the abs. I’m sure it will be more sore as the night goes on. There’s a drain bag attached for now, eventually they will cap it and make everything drain to inside. I think in 2-3 days I go back under for the angioplasty part, then I can go home for a few weeks. All good so far! And, I got to eat!!February 19, 2014 at 1:26 am #79659pfox2100Member

Good luck, Derin. I would love to catch a flight and rush to room 1631B and lend my support. Given the circumstances however; please accept my cyber presence.
Awaiting to hear from you real soon.

Well, I’m in NY, it was 20 yesterday, 32 today, and I’m supposed to be getting this procedure done in a half hour or so but no one has come to grab me. In Sloan Kettering in NY room 1631B if anyone is in the neighborhood!! Will post some more when I get out!February 16, 2014 at 5:53 am #79655lisacraineParticipant
I saw a great picture of you, Rose and Cathy. What a wonderful group.
Good luck with your procedure.

I have lots of scar tissue from previous surgeries. Mine have been treated with drains into external bags. I am post surgical resection 5 years with no recurrence.

Good luck with the procedure. Love the good news!

Yes I’ve heard of this procedure too and I hope that it goes smoothly for you and that you’ll be back to work etc after a few weeks. Just to confirm though, you ate, ate, ate, ate and ate some more on your trip to New Orleans. Sounds like a great trip to me!!!
Hope all goes well with the balloon.

Yes, the bile duct is narrow… but not mine since they used my small intestine to make a new one!! I think the s=arring and narrowing is at the connection point of the new bile duct to the liver so that is where they will ‘balloon’ things…February 13, 2014 at 6:27 am #79650
Derin….mostly good news it is. I have learned that any surgery can cause scar tissue. It is part of the normal healing process in the body.
The bile duct is a thin tube hence, it does not take much tissue growth to cause blockage.
The search function will lead you to numerous discussion on the issue of scar tissue – thought to enclose this one.
I am pretty sure that others will have information to share with you as well.
Thinking of you and sending tons of good wishes your way,
