Had stents placed during ERCP last night

I had my 3rd ERCP last night and he did put stents in 2 sphincters. He said they appeared open somewhat but the transverse fold had flattened them. I don't know what that means and not sure if I asked b/c he talked to me after I was barely awake and I don't remember much. Not sure why he didn't talk to my husband.

I was in alot of pain after waking up (I was put totally out with prophanol) I began throwing up so they gave me zofran and demerol. I asked to get pain meds to take home but my dr said take tylenol which is weird b/c I was getting pain meds in IV so obviously I was in pain.

So today I've been using Motrin, Ultram (I had from something else) and Zofran, I am very nauseaed; haven't ate much. I'm in pain still, feeling like I'm having gallbladder attacks on and off all day. I'm irritated b/c he didn't send me with any pain meds to get me through these couple of days, but regardless. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I'm hoping I feel better soon.

If you have had stents put in have you ever heard of sphincters being "flattened" also did you have them removed after the 3 months? How did you feel in the beginning?
