Topic: pulmonary embolus, stent replacement, filter, and a few other problem
My husband had a a porta embol, since that time he has had alot or problems, he had gallbladder cancer, removed it, he has tumors on his liver and bile duct. They placed a stent in him since there was no flow from the bile duct. He then went into the er with problems breathing, it showed he had pulmonary embolus, they put a filter in him to catch future ones, but the two left in his lungs will remain, they cannot give him blood thinner since he has a hematoma from the gallgladder surgry and he could bleed internally. Then he started having terrible pain and they found out his stent had moved and they went in and replaced it, ever since his last ercp (to remove and replace the new stent, he has total confusion, his speech is slurred and he has terrible swelling in his legs and testicles. It has been 3 days since he has had any morphine or any pain pills. I think they gave him to much morphine, and they did give him 3 doses of narcan, he still is confused and speech is still slurred, the doctors dont really seem to be doing anything about this, he did have a head ct. and a abdominal one too, but it seems like they dont know why this is occuring or they are just not telling us. Has anything like this ever happened to anyone out there or does anyone have any ideas what is wrong with him. He can hardly stand up now. He came into the hospital sharp , not confused, just in pain and breathing problems.
