The doctors have just found a bile leak after an EUS. I have to get another doctor due to insurance issues. Can someone explain to me a bit more about this condition? I have been in horrific pain for months and have been getting dizzy spells after eating. If I am not on antibiotics I cannot walk very well and have horrible back pain. I had HPylori, no other surgery and my gallbladder and left side of the liver is fine. Where could it be coming from? Can they just go in and repair it or does this take months with a drain? Sometimes my urine is very dark. Please help, thanks!

Hi Liversnaps,

A bile leak, means you have an opening via it be a tear, hole, etc that shouldn't be. It is serious and you should have it fixed ASAP. Your doctor will explain what procedure is best to approach.

Good Luck,

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Bile leak needs closure, cholecystectomy and proper stump closure, get a doctor/ laproscopic surgeon and let them fix it.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
