Today he had the scope procedure done to see if the stint was working properly and to check for blockage. We were relieved to find out he did have blockage....food!!! Apparently a piece of lettuce or something similar was preventing the stint from working. That would explain why he had bile in his stomach, why he was vomiting bile and why nothing was working. Thankfully they fixed it and hopefully he will start feeling better. There is still a chance his kidney has some blockage so tomorrow they will do an ultrasound to see if it is still swollen. If the kidney is still swollen he will probably have another procedure done. He was able to keep down a milkshake today which is great. He is also pretty drowsy from all of the medication. Hopefully now his levels will start to even out and just maybe he can finally get chemo??? I'll let you know how tomorrow goes.
