Another possible contact is the HPB unit at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. I had my surgery there and am continuing to be seen by them. I only have good things to say about them and my surgeon, Dr Emmanuel Huguet.
I can give contact details to anyone who wants them.
Vincent, whilst in hospital this week I was in a ward with a guy who has had a stent replaced in his throat a couple of times and he is now making fantastic progress. Yes it is a pain but I’m sure they will get it sorted and help your mum.
Just returned home last night after spending four days in hospital following the pain I experienced in my back, legs and shoulders. I have been put back on Tramadol and paracetamol. I waited two (!!!) days for a scan and it showed I have pocket of fluid about 4x4cm near my liver. They are going to monitor it and hope it dissipates itself. They do not want to drain it as it is in an awkward position and getting to it would be tough. Will return to the clinic next week and see how things progess.
