hiya everyone...well i really do need some help.
on christmas eve-me my mum and dad went out for a meal. we finished the starter's and dad said he was hot.
i told him to go out side and get some air and he tried to move back but began to slip.
he collasped into me and stopped breathing for a few sec's then came back to us.
his eyes rolled and and your could see he was going...we got him onto the floor and he was slightly breathing but had sharp pains just underneath the diaphram.
when we tried to get him up he slipped again...so until the ambulance went he was on the floor for 30-40mins.
he was sick in the ambulance....he was pure white and very grey-he cant remember any of it.
the hospital did a few tests but never found anything. so they let him home.which i werent happy about
2 days later he had a funy turn - but had a banging headache. light sensitive.
this time he's not in the same hospital, and they have done a cat scan because he bumped his head 6months ago..but that was clear.(they thought it was blood vessel's bursting under the skin.)
i cant rememebr what this was called but you will wen i describe it u will. they drained fluided from the bottom of the spine. that was clear.
hes been in hospital since...but what concerns me, is his right foot is very swollen...plus he has around 15 bruises on each foot going up the calve.
there reddish...sum a bit more purpley - but now i just rang him and he said he has a tingiling feeling in his foot. and its swollen more than yest??round the ankle area...going arcoss
he had a accident years ago and had a knee op..cartlige. he had a really odd jump in his leg after and it had a mind of its own.
anyway after the drainage it stopped and so did the headache.
the only thing they found was high cholosteral( sorry its spelt wrong)
but he doesnt smoke, drink hes an ok eater..doesnt eat to much snacks rather than processed.
can anyone help me.....i told the docs about the leg but its been two days and they are busy....which is dispicaple
im getting rather angry to be honest - but im going back there later
and im not leaving til i find a doctor.
oh also if its helpful....he drives a forklift truck. the ground isnt level. and hes been doing it 22 years now. hes 52.
he also has had problems with his back .....slipped disk and always took pain killers to carry on.
please help if anyone has an idea as to what has happened.??
