Regarding possible SODD (sphincterof Oddi dysfunction). PLEASE do not let them do the ERCP and "cut" the sphincter. I was glad to read that your doctor was concerned about doing it because it's makes pancreatitis worse----he is RIGHT! I am a nurse too, and started having severe pain in Dec 08. Long story, sorry. And if anyone has any insight into my problems too, I would love to hear from you.
