Topic: Stents Replaced
I had my stents replaced yesterday down at Univerity of Colorado Health Sciences Center. They said the tumors appear to be improved. The ERCP back in February said the tumors improved significantly. So I will take it. They replaced the plastic stents with more plastic stents. They talked about doing metal stents. Metal stents would be permanent. I still may have to have ERCPs to clean out the metal stents. I am just afraid of the word permanent.
Does anybody have any experience with metal stents they would like to share?
