Jaundice disappeared


Recommended Posts

My Mum was diagnosed 1 week ago with locally advanced PC and we are awaiting an MDT meeting. Whilst she was in hospital last week she was quite jaundiced and the consultant said the tumour was preventing bile draining and booked her in for an ERCP with stent to correct this. She is due to have the op in 3 days. However over the past 2 days the jaundice has completely disappeared. My Mum says her urine is back to a normal colour and she feels like she has much more energy. When I got Mum home I spoke to the GP to get some better pain relief on board and they also prescribed dexamethasone to improve Mum's appetite - could this be a possible reason for the improvement? Or can the jaundice just come and go? Thanks for any advice you can provide x
