Fact sheet for people with a duodenal stent

by | 12 January, 2024 | Pancreatic cancer

For those who have or will have a duodenal stent, read more about this – including how to manage your diet – in a fact sheet from Pancreatic Cancer UK. 

After you eat, food moves from your stomach into your duodenum, which is the first part of the small intestine.

If you have pancreatic cancer, the cancer can press on the duodenum and stop the food passing out of the stomach. That can make you feel full up, feel sick, vomit large amounts, lose weight and have tummy pain, bloating, and cramps.

A duodenal stent is a tube that is put into the duodenum to open up the blockage and let the food pass through. Once the stent is in, you should start to feel better quite quickly.

Sometimes there can be problems with stents, including blockages. So, if you have a duodenal stent, you will need to be careful about what you eat to stop it getting blocked.
