I will add this to my list! Dad doesn't seem too well at the moment. He doesn't have much appetite and he is sleeping more. He had a rough time with the change of stent, firstly picking up an bacterial infection and then becoming constipated from the IV antibiotics. They gave him tablets and movicol for this but Dad has a illestomy bag and I think the combination was a bit too strong and he has really suffered with his stomach. I'd read tomato juice was good for Jaundice, not only for the bile but the appetite so he has started to drink and enjoy this. We are back at the hospital Friday to have his blood took, fingers crossed his bilirubin has come down and he can have the drain took out, it is capped off at moment, if not they will put drain bag back on and have mentioned a CT scan as they gave him a cholangiogram (sp) and the dye was moving around the bile ducts as it should.
More waiting but hopefully it will be good news, we have got to have some soon, this rollercoaster has been dipping down way too long!
Devoted Daughter to the most wonderful Dad a girl could ask for. Sadly lost his battle on 19.02.11, peacefully in the arms of Mom and I. As requested by Dad "we will keep on smiling".
