Has anyone with PSC had an ampullectomy?

No experiences with this however I believe I read an article at CPMC on the subject. There they had created a system to slice the tumor off the duct in a painless, quick procedure. Interested in the discussion the follow.

I had it done last month. Once they removed the tumor my enzymes dropped drastically

How are you getting on since your ampullectomy Christine? How do you feel?

I feel better. My liver enzymes have actually returned to normal ranges and my platelets are normal. Still recovering and I had a mild pancreatitis attack on Wednesday, but I’m getting stronger every day. I lost 25 pounds, so I’ve been a little weak, but it gets better every day.

I go back to Duke Next month to have my stints removed from my bile duct.

That’s good to hear Christine. I’m glad you are feeling better. You will regain your strength slowly too so things can only get better still.
All the best with your appointment next month. Keep us posted on how you get on.
Wishing you a full and speedy recovery.
Best wishes, Priya x
