So, I am sort of feeling like the procedure they did yesterday was a total waste of time and money.
The doctor looked in the large bile duct...to check to see if that's where the infection is coming from...well it's not. They reported that there is no stone in there (great! we already knew that!) The gallstone is in the small bile duct...and they didn't even look in that duct or try to get the stone out.
SO....I don't know what they are thinking. (I know they are doing their best and I am greatful for it...) They did drain almost 3 liters of fluid off of my dad's abdomen (toxic stuff that isn't being processed by dad's clogged up liver). So, that helps!
