i had my gullbladder removed a year ago,the dr did not run the dye thru to make sure there were no blockages,for the next three days I was in so much pain that i could not handle it.they ran tests and found out I had a blockage in my bio ducts.they did another surgery and placed a biliary stent in and I was told that the stent would pass thru after about a month.Over a year later I get a letter from the dr. telling me to call at earliest convinence to schedule a ERCP to have the stent removed.should this stent have been left in for almost 14 monthes or did the dr mess up and forget about me.also is it my decision on weather or not i am put to sleep for the removel of the stent?

Hello, I'm really sorry to hear this. The stent should be removed between 4-8 weeks maximum is 3 months. They are supposed to follow the ERCP up after they send you home with an appointment 3-4 weeks after stent placenta. If you have no adverse symptoms right now it's possible that the stent has passed through your system. Might be worth taking a scan to make sure it's there before another ERCP. Ask them why they left it so long as the stent isn't meant to be left in for more than 3 months. There is a name for this and it is called, Medical negligence. Please teach them a lesson! I am not an expert or qualified in any way, all this is just advice. I really hope you don't have any further complications.
