Dear Christine,
  I practically fell off my chair when I read your post. This is what I am
going thru now! I just had an ERCP procedure where nothing was found but he
dilated a duct from the liver to where the gall bladder had been.  Had the
gall bladder removed last year and I am wondering if adhesions from that
surgery could be causing the upper right abdominal pain and the cause the
liver enzymes to be elevated.  What kind of doctor are you seeing? Has he
offered any relief?

Mine says there is nothing more he can do for me.Please reply nomoredo@aol.com Take Care, Becky
