Treatment for Biliary Blockage

Please advise if there is an effective treatment in homeopathy for the below condition -

1 Patient Age - 81 yrs/female

2. Problem - For last 4 years, she has been having severe constipation and lack of appetite, which is getting bad to worse day by day despite regular medicines.

3. Symptoms -

- Any food or liquid she takes tastes bad.

- Occassional pain in the stomach which subsides with simple medicines

- Occassional feeling of bloating in the stomach

- General discomfort due to not having motions.

- Many times, the stool gets stuck in the passage and she feels highly uncomfortable so much so that once she tried to pull it out with her fingers which led to bleeding and she had to be hospitalised, where a colonoscopy was done to stop the bleeding.

- Daily food has come down to less than 1 chapati per day and less than 1 glass of water/tea/milk.

- Now for past over a month, the motions have more or less stopped altogether - she has had a motion only 2/3 times in the whole month, even after taking all kinds of laxatives given by the doctors.

- Passing of urine is normal.

- Is hardly able to sleep in the nights either due to anxiety or discomfort.

4. Diagnosis (CT Scan) -

- mild dilation in biliary tree, across entire length of common bile duct and in pancreatic duct

- A focal lesion about 1.3 cm at the terminal end of common bile duct (ampula) slightly jutting into the medial duodenal wall. But no obvious calculas is detected.

- Also indication of a small (2 cm) left ovarian cyst

- All other organs in the adbomen including liver, pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys etc are normal in size and shape

5. Other medical history -

- She was a patient of high BP for many years but that problem is now resolved and in fact is replaced by a situation of low BP (upto 60/110) occassionally. No medicines for this as of now.

- Has lost vision completely in one eye due to retinal detachment and almost 90% loss in the other eye due to cataract. Doctors have advised against any cataract surgery also.

- She is also suffering from arthritis but no medication for this as of now.

- Because of loss of vision, arthritis and extreme weakness, her movements have become restricted to within the home.

Doctors have advised an ERCP procedure to be done and a stent inserted in the common bile duct. Due to her advanced age and above complications, however, we are extremely worried getting this done and looking for some way to avoid it.

Can someone please help.
