my mom had an ercp to have a metal stent placed a week ago, to replace the plastic one put in at the time of her diagnosis two months ago.  she went in to the emergency room the next day with chills + fever.  she was in the hospital on IV antibiotics for four days, then sent home with oral antibiotics.  her fever has persisted and now her gall bladder is enlarged, but her bilirubin etc. are normal. 

any advice? the doctors seem a little confused.
