Dad just received stent today and all went well Hopefully his bilirubin will drop into a range to allow him to receive therasphere. He will be the first pt at Mayo Clinic in rodchester MN to receive the tx. If all goes well,, I will shout it from the mountain top to help all others out there with cc. The scary thing about my dad is that Mayo just about wrote him off, told him to go home and that he would have 6-9 months to live. That was prior to getting final path report. Then prior to his stent, one of his doctors was quite negative, told him that they may not even place stent if his common bile duct wasn't blocked. Thank God literally, that all went well.
We still have hope,
