Topic: Anyone had their liver tickled?
Ok, since the ERCP was unsuccessful due to my new plumbing my doctors are in a quandry about what to do. They are putting together a couple of options....
1. Do another PET/CT scan and look again-my last one was in August.
2. HAve a liver biopsy in which the knock me out, go through my liver and into my bile duct where they were brush my suspicious area and check for cancer cells. Has anyone ever had this done? I am concerned as I *think* I remember reading something that this was not good as it was possible for cancer cells to spread this way.
Has anyone else done something different to investigate an area that was difficult to reach? Help-I dont want my liver tickled.
