    Hey all,

    The Dr. writes "There was evidence of small spincterotomy which was extended."

    Do you think that means he did another sphincterotomy. I just don't know if that is enough to say yes, but I was wondering if anyone else has seen it worded like this before.

    I have the same situation. Did you ever get your answer?
