sphincter of Oddi dysfunction

Anyone else here hear of this? Its common in a lot of people who have had their gallbladders removed. My GI dr says I definately have this. He is very, very hesitant though to do an ERCP since the risks sometimes outweigh the benefits. He is concerned that I would develop pancreatitis and given my health history that would definately not be a good thing.

Now I trust my GI-he's ranked one of the top 10 in the country. However, I don't want to be in pain the rest of my life either. Are there other ways to treat this condition? Any medications that can help? Any websites I can check out? I just don't know where else to turn. I see my GI again the end of the month and I want to be prepared for this visit. Thanks

Nancy
