Bile bulbs

I have had the whipple surgery on the second of June 08.  I had 2 bile bulbs removed 3 weeks ago.  The last bile bulb was to be removed in 3 weeks.  The three weeks have come to a close and the bile bulb is still filling to the point that I asked my doctor for two weeks more.  The alternative would be to go to the scheduled appointment and have a four thousand dollar shot (that medicare will not pay for) to dry it up .  I decided to let nature heal it.  The doctor said I would require the shot if it did not dry up in the next two weeks.  Has anyone else encountered this problem?
