Do I need a stent after removal of large stone in common bile duct through cholecystectomy?

I have large stone in common bile duct and have Hx of open cholecystectomy in 1982 and ERCP with sphincterotomy in 1997 and 1999 with massive pancreatitis in 1999-almost died. I now need another ERCP to try to remove stone but stone so large will probably need stent. Very scared of pancreatitis again as was told to never have this procedure ever again.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
It is purely surgical condition, and as long as the operative procedure is concern every thing is depends upon your clinical condition, and it has to be handled according to it, if it does not developed any severe symptoms and if it can be managed medically then in my opinion this has to be tried first, take care and have nice day.
