Surgery was not an option for 87 yr old mother with heart problems. Couldn't drain the gallbladder due to low platelet count and acute infection from gallstones. Antibiotics did not change anything. Her stats yesterday dropped to 108/40. Care center making her
I dont think this finished but they absolutely need to do something. They cant let her die from gallstones. If they arent able to get any medications to work then they need to be doing laproscopic surgery on her.
Thank you for your reply. Mother passed away 3/1st after several days in the hospital and several in a care center. She was transferred when the hospital said there wasn't anything more they could do for her. We were told they couldn't do any procedure until they managed the infection and nothing was helping. They couldn't do a blood transfusion because her system was compremised with staff infection (MRSA). I haven't seen the death certificate yet, and yes, we are upset as to what really happened.
Thank you for your note. I agree, everyone is telling me her situation doesn't make sense. I hope to sit down with her doctor but I don't think I'd get the information I need. I am going to see if I can have a copy of her medical records (I have legal Power of Attorney on her health care). THank you again,.
