Anyway, I have found out that the gall stone that causes all the pain is lodged in the Ampula of Varter (wonderful name) which is located just a blood squirt from the sphincter of Oddi (equally wonderful).
Sedation awaits!

Hope it goes well for you.

A clinical examination by an ENT surgeon helps to discover the cancerous lesions. Endoscopy involves using a scope to take a closer look at the throat. Oncologists can use a special lighted scope fitted with a tiny camera (known as an endoscope) to transmit images on to a video screen that monitors for signs of abnormalities or malignant growth. The endoscope can be inserted either through the mouth or through the nose. The endoscope also contains a biopsy forcep that can remove tissue samples to proceed with a biopsy if the monitor shows a visible abnormality
