Duodenal Stricture
My husband has biliary disease and a duodenal stricture.  He's had five ERCPs in 2012.  A metal stent was placed  in the common bile duct 7-13-2012 and the duodenum was stretched with a balloon.  For the last two weeks, he's been having excessive gas,  and severe pain that we think is from the gas; he feels full after eating very small amounts.  He's also having nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and is weak and losing weight.

Can you better define "biliary disease"? Metal stents are usually placed to palliate a malignant stricture. This would imply that his duodenal stricture is secondary to tumor. Your brief description sounds like the duodenal dilation failed. What has the surgeon said? If resection is not an option a bypass would be in order.this would be a procedure to make a direct connection between his stomach and small bowel below the narrowed segment so food can pass through (gastrojejunostomy).
