Hi All, my dad is back at home after a 2 week hospital stay. Can't get his stents to work so he had to have an external biliary bag put in place which is now draining properly although it is still a lot of bile coming out. The pain is sort of under control but he has no appetite and eats very little. What he does eat, he tends to throw up. There is still to be work done on his bile duct since it has cancer in it, but he can't take chemo until he is stronger and eating more regularly. There is still no cancer in his pancreas or liver. Has anyone else experienced this? We're taking it half a day at a time since some moments he's better than others. What a roller coaster. Prayers for all.
