My father-in-law had obstructive jaundice and then ERCP and a plastic stent
put in. He is waiting for Whipple's surgery.
He takes some antibiotics and as soon as he stops, he gets infection. Chills,
high fever and vomiting.
My question is: what is the best way to maintain the stent and contain the
infection. Any advice?
