I have to go into Hospital on the 26th Jan to have an ERCP. It is an endoscopy where they do some treatment as well. Mine is to remove gallstones from my bile duct because the stones have not passed out in the normal way & are still lodged there. They have to do this before removal of my gall bladder. Some time after that I have to go back in again to have my gall bladder removed. Has anyone had an ERCP & can give me any tips how to cope.

    Hi gretta, I cannot help either and also want to wish you luck. I know there is someone else on the forum who has been having gall bladder/gall stones trouble but they haven't posted for ages. I hope they look in soon, and see your post, they might be able to help. I wish you well. DD
