Although I appreciate his concern for my well-being, I am disappointed because I thought an ERCP would show the location of the cyst better and whether it was a main duct or side branch IPMN. He says he will be able to tell with EUS. I hope he's right. I have confidence in this doctor because he has is an expert in endoscopic techniques and was Director of the Endoscopic Ultrasound Unit at Johns Hopkins.
I asked him why my last EUS would have missed it and he said 'the other doc just didn't see it'. Well folks, that's why I want further testing because I am wondering if there might be something else the other doctor 'just didn't see'.
Appt for EUS on March 11 - would appreciate prayers from anyone who is so inclined. Thanks!
