The Dr's office called, they set up a scope to take a look at the stint keeping the bile duct open. We traveled to Portland yesterday and sure enough, the stint had slid down and was sitting just under the blockage, causing a backup of bile again. Thank goodness they found this before he got sick again. The poor guy has had jauntice twice. And, this is his third stint, the first two slid out of place as well. This one they say is longer and shouldn't slide. It was done by a different dr in a different hospital so maybe this one will stay in place. We can only hope.
The tumor is in the head of the pancreas and pressing against the bile duct.
He is feeling ok, he said "not great" but the procedure was only yesterday. I have to give him so much credit for having a positive attitude. I hope I would be that strong if I was sitting in his seat.
