Wink sphincter of oddi & surgery

Hi,
I have been suffering from SOD since I was diagnosed in February of 2006. At that time I had an ERCP which determined the pressure was high, so I had a sphincteromtomy, which helped a little. The pain is still there & it hurts all the time. Since then, I have had 3 more ERCP's, 2 stents, 2 cuts made in the duct, gallbladder surgery, 3 pain blocks & the list goes on. I recently had another ERCP & the pressure was high again, My dr put in a stent & I felt worse. It is quite embarrrasssing when people start recognizing me at the hospital. My dr. put me on channel blockers to see if that helps. I am at my wits end & if I dont get any relief, I am considering doing the "big" surgery, a sphincteroplasty. I have an excellent surgeon, the top in the city, so I feel like I am in excellent hands. My surgeon told me that he would filet the muscle open & also do a bypass. I am wondeing if anyone has ever had the surgery, what was your experience & did it help. I would love to hear back. Thanks!
