Topic: Dad diagnosed with ascites
hey there all
My dad was diagnosed with cc in October. He had a resectable klatskin tumor which was removed on october 31. His recovery was going great until thanksgiving when he started with pain. He was admitted to the James (osu) on December 1 for a " biloma" released on December 5. Readmitted on December 10 and was diagnosed with ascites. He was put on a big dose of lasix , some potassium chloride and his antibiotic was changed then discharged on the 12th. He is suffering with chills, which I understand to be common???? And has some confusion, difficulty concentrating and zero appetite. These chills completely exhaust him. I am concerned for his kidneys and his albumin level. What seems like to have been a miracle story is rapidly spinning out of control and I do not know what to do. Any advise? Thank you in advance!
