. 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.
