While I was sleeping...............

After they figured out I was having problems with my bile ducts draining and I prepared to have them do the lovely proceedure the next day this popped up while I was sleeping!

I rolled over on my right side for about an hour and woke up with the swelling to the left....felt like a big mango shoved under my skin....Then over the night it changed to the photo on the right. They did an ultrasound and it is only a hematoma. There had been bleeding of the vessels under the skin and this was the result.

It was so full and there was/is so much pressure that it has been extremely painful which hydromorphone (Dilaudid), took care of.....

I feel better today and will go get my ERCP today.... I have to spend 30 minutes on my stomach which should be interesting!

Have a great day everyone!

Holy Crap.
I hope you get to feeling better after the endoscopy. That looks wicked.
