Hi, . This has been Developed due to Gal bladder damage. He got a plastic stent to control the jaundice 15 days ago. My Doubt is whether we can go for a 'Metallic' stent as doctors say that is permanent one. But some say that is risky because Plastic stent can be replaced if it got blocked, Metal stent can not be replaced if it get blocked. Please clarify.

Regards, Ravikiran.
