hi all of you

My husband does have metal stents in.  They replaced it for the 3rd time now.
Reading all your comments confirms what the doctor is saying.  Stents need to be replaced on a regular basis from now. I will look out for the fever, chills and yellow.

My husband had 10months of chemo and 25 days of radiation.  He is scared of chemo now.  It is his choice and I can only support him.

He is still in hospital, they check the stents on Monday again and then will they arrange for them to be capped.  Not sure when we can go home .

Will keep you posted.

Both stents were repaced. Only 3 months after the last one's.  Why is this happening?  The doctor is saying that the tumor is growing.  Can that be the reason and are we going to this on a regular basis now?

Hi Pam/Lainy, we 7 hours drive away from Cape Town.  We are staying in Port Elizabeth.  My husband's stents were put in at the Groote Schuur hospital in Cape Town.

The dr cant tell us if my hubby will benifit from the chemo.  He was previously for 10 months on chemo and had radiation for 25 days.

Trying my best to stay strong for him and the daughters, what can I do to stop him being so negative.

Will keep you updated.

Thanks for the quick respond. My husband was diagnosed in September 2010 with cholangiocarcinoma.  He was on chemo for 10 months and radiation for 25 days.  The cancer can not be operated. He have 2 internal stents in.  He had infection recently and the chemo was put on hold.  His last treatment  was at the end of August.  At the moment there is no fever, he is just very weak.  My husband is 52 years.  My question is, is it ok for him to be without   treatment for so long?
