Is this the body rejection of a stent they put in
Should he have it removed.
Too many procedures like the same, never gets better
Doc won’t talk about it before the procedure only
afterwards. Last stent moved and was misplaced upward near liver. They dialated 10 cm to get the crooked stent out. He feels worse after having it replaced 1 1/2 weeks ago. What should he do?
He been doing this 6X at least. Any thoughts out there? They originally thought a scan showed tumor while lookin at ribs from a fall. He had no pain. Also thinks he has pancreatitis, now. Doc cleaned out debris in bile duct.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Pancreatic Cancer Support Group.

Hi @harley14u. As you likely know, ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) is a procedure used to diagnose diseases of the gallbladder, biliary system, pancreas, and liver. The test looks "upstream" where digestive fluid comes from -- the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas -- to where it enters the intestines.

I'm glad that the doctors were able to rule out cancer. Has he talked about the stent with his doctor? What are the next steps?
