Thank you all for your comments and messages of support for Mags. She went into Airedale General this morning for her ERCP, had the procedure and I collected her at around half-three. She was a lot brighter than I expected her to be. I thought that she might be a bit groggy after the sedative, but no, she was laughing and joking with the nurse as she was wheeled down to meet me in the waiting room.
The doctor’s report indicates that everything went well, although two large stones could not be removed from the bile duct so stents were introduced instead to get things moving. There was no pain, nor even any discomfort, and she was well looked after by the staff in the Endoscopy Unit.
We’ll wait to see what her GP wants to do regarding a follow-up, but the hospital are happy that there’s no need for further investigation. I expect that the GP will want Mags in for blood and wee samples in the next couple of weeks to make sure everything is back to normal. We’ll see.
So thanks to the people at Airedale, and thanks again, Dear Reader for your kind thoughts.
