    I agree about the stents. The dark unrine is a pretty sure sign of jaundice.
    My external drains were annoying and prone to infection but never painful.

    Candy, I would get him back to the doctor asap, it sounds to me like his stent is blocked

    Hi, my brother diagnosed last week, external drain put in on Friday, it is Tuesday now and he seems worse than 2 days ago. Is in so much pain and says his urine is dark again and bag doesn’t seem to be draining easily. Is it normal for him to still be in huge pain? He’s taking Dilaudid and I’m thinking that should be working. He might be a candidate for resection but I’m worried about his strength. He’s down to 115 lbs already.
    thanks for any advice, should we call doctor or go to ER?
