Topic: Having procedure today, 5/20
I'm having the procedure today to have stents or external drain put in to help lower bilirubin and make me eligible for more aggressive chemo. Bili has to go down to 5 to be eligible for the aggressive chemo. Mine was at 22.1 last Wednesday and I'm guessing it's higher now given I'm more yellow.
Please pray that the doctor can get the stents in so I don't have the external drain. Would be great if I woke up with no external drains!
I'm at the hospital now - procedure is scheduled for 11.15am EDT.
