Thanks for the replies.  The doctor does not see any signs that tumor is present. 
When the stents were first placed I felt good for just 4 weeks.  I figure there has to be a limit to the number of stents that can be placed.  The ones I have are the metal ones, I hear they are not easily removed.
Are there any other options besides stents and drains ?

I had a liver resection in August 2011.  I have had 3 billiary drain stents but there is always another occlusion.  Now I have the external drain and still not getting good drainage, jaundice still there.  My doctors have been very nice but i am thinking it is time for other options.   

Is this a common problem after liver resection?
