Does anyone know if an esophageal stent can cause pain and can it be removed safely? My brother had a stent placement back in September but he is having such pain in his chest area, he feels it is the stent. They finally did a catscan on him the 28th but has to wait to get the results when he goes in this Wednesday. My brother just wants this out but can it be done safely and then will he be able to swallow?
