My mom went to the ER on Sunday June 27 with extreme jaundice, pain and nausea.
She was diagnosed with biliary cancer on June 28. She had her first ERCP to put in a stent to open the duct on July 2.
On July 6th she was back in the ER with pain and jaundice. The stents has failed.
On July 8 She had a second ERCP to put 2 more stents in. She was wary to do the procedure again.
While in the hospital they also put in her chemo port on July 9.
She was back in the ER with fever, 10 plus pain and nausea on July 16. This was sepsis.
She had a 3rd ERCP on July 16 to remove the stents and get better for a day.
On July 17 She then had 2 biliary drains put in. The procedure itself was painful and the recovery has been difficult as her pain was not managed properly.
On July 20 her pain was very high and we went with a higher pain med to manage the pain of the cancer.
The pain is finally under control for now.
Thanks for your prayers and love. Jill
