Five days ago my mother had a stent put in and we would like to hear any info on what to expect. She was able to take clear fluids for the first 4 days but today has been vomiting and unable to keep anything down. Any suggestions or info would be appreciated.

First of all I would ask the DR. to do an x-ray to make sure the stent is hasn't moved.
If it hasn't then I would about a blenderized diet or modified liquid diet. It is difficult at first so try things gradually. That should help.
