Hi , I had one fitted in November but have had a lot of infections around stent so now they want to remove stent and put in a drain. I had an MRCP (MRI) last Tues and waiting for results for decision to be made.
Not the best advert for stents im afraid.
I have cancer in bile duct with secondaries in liver.
best wishes Sally
Biliary stents can migrate (fall out - basically), or block with sludge. When and if this happens, it is often possible to clear it or fit another.
