    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!

    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!!

    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!

    Hi Derin,
    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.

    Hi Derin,

    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.

    Best wishes,

    Gavin

    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…

    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,
    Hugs,
