Well, good news is nice, but it usually is followed by some pain in the rump thing like ascending cholangitis. Dad knew it was time to revise his stents. He just put it off and put it off. Now he has the whole routine....dark urine, nausea, occasional vomiting, itching. This is the neverending battle with the stents.

Hopefully he will last until his appointment on Monday with the GI doctor, but then again, maybe by then he will have been clogged up for too long. I know this scares him. He is convinced the stents will be his downfall, not the cancer at all.

Hope everyone out there is having a nice day. Tanja, I am thinking of you. Take care and have a safe weekend.
