I'm glad I found this forum and know that we are not the only ones dealing with this
cancer. I'd like to ask a couple of additional questions. How long does a stent usually last? If we start seeing signs of jaundice does that mean that the stent is just blocked or is it a sign that the cancer is progressing ? Also at the time when the stent was inserted they did remove 3 stones, but it does not look like they did a biopsy because
there was no pathologist report . All the doctor's discharge report said was that it was
likely CC and the prognosis was poor. Should a biopsy have been done and should I request one be done ? I know I am asking a lot of questions but I am having trouble getting any answers from the doctor. Any help would be appreciated.
