Topic: Double stent
I have my appointment next week to have my ERCP/plastic stent replaced. Over the last year I have had a few episodes of fever, chills and bilirubin going up which indicates an obstruction. I go on antibiotics as a precaution and it resolves itself and usually only lasts about 12 hours but there was one time where I was pretty sick and was in the hospital for 3 days. Because of this, the doctor is suggesting they put in 2 stents side by side. The doctor said to expect some pain. My other stent replacements have been very routine. Never even know they did anything so I am a little nervous about this. Has anyone had side by side stents?
