The doctor was able to place a stent in Lucy's bile duct, quickly. The entire procedure was done in just over an hour. He came out and told us that Lucy had a significant fibrous stricture with lots of scar tissue. When I asked him about the debris found in her bile duct, he said very politely in his Nigerian accent, "Oh yes, you are Americans you always want to know how much :)". The only way to keep her bile duct open was to place a stent. Lucy is in the pediatric recovery unit, awaiting admission to the peds floor. She was quite uncomfortable after her procedure, but was given a hefty bolus dose of fentanyl to help make her comfortable.
