Thank you Gavin. Yes she has the itching now and has had it for about 3 to 4 weeks. She went to the doctor and he said it may be dry skin but since then has checked her numbers via bloodwork and told her this could be the start of things shutting off and I don't know what he means by that. As I stated previously I am out of town and those caring for her do not have a lot of medical knowledge or understand what all this means nor do they ask. Makes me crazy. She has not had a stent nor any other tretment at all for that matter. About three months ago she was admitted to the hospital and we went there and was told by the doctor that we should call in hospice and gave her two days, two weeks or two months. I'm so confused. Could this possibly mean that the bile ducts are getting shut off. I know it would be just your opinion but any info is deeply appreciated.
