It all started from gallbladder stones and one actually being enveloped by gb tissue. Gallbladder removal was bad becsuse it was so inflamed as was the pancreas, and he was full of sludge/bile.
Extreme pain persisted for days, no fever tho.... He could not even stand.
Second procedure to see what was wrong... Possible liver failure and a leak from the original procedure. Stent installed and a drain... Drain pulled 2100ML of bile out.
Few days later another drain put in.... Another 600ml of bile drained.
Still cant stand, slight fever which broke in a few hrs... Still cant eat.
This is 2 week mark, problem of bile leaking persistent. Pain so bad hes hallucinating multiple times per day. Pain meds are not touching the pain.
Moved to another hospital...... Another procedure, 2 more pumps installed (4 ttl). More bile coming out, cannot stop leak.
Gi tract slowed to a halt, infection of some sort now, white blood cell count off the charts, picc line placed to heart, hes still jaundiced, urine is quite dark, cant stand, in and out of consciousness, skin and bones from lack of nutrition, his skin on his arms literally hangs when he raises them. Its sad, hes lost hope. Pain can do some terrible things to people.
He has voiced wanting to give up... We have each let him know its ok but we are still trying to fix this. I honestly dont see this ending well. Really i dont. Even if it ends with him living he has a long recovery and we dont know what the long term effects will be or if he will even be able to accept that life. In the meantime both my parents income is gone. Im on a fixed income but doing what i can for them.
Its hard seeing someone u love wither away from a healthy person to a shell.
I can’t imagine what y’all are going through. I hate for you buddy.
Didnt want to write and remember all that.... But kinda left yall wondering, im sorry.
Its been hell.
I’m sure it has . Thank you for the write up. Be strong!!!
Update, this latest surgery didn't work either.... Now hes gotta have another procedure where they rebuild the ducts that were damaged.
Iirc this is number 5 or 6?
Sorry to hear this is happening to your father @Bojangles . Watching those we love go through anything like this is one of the hardest things we will ever face in life. Hope you and your family find the support you need and your father finds his way through this.
Ugh!!! I know how hard it is when there's nothing you can do for them brother. Well wishes going his and your way. ~~~~~~~~~~•》》》
