My husband, in his early 50's, was rushed to the er where they told him he had kidney failure. They started diaylsis immediately. They did it nine days in, with only taking one day off. I've never heard of this before. They found fluids around his lungs so they diaylsis two time in a twelve hr. period at four hrs. at a time, it didn't remove the fluid around his lungs. So they inserted a big needle into his lungs to try to extract the fluids but that didn't work. Finally they did a chest tube extraction. Everything seemed fine until late that night when my husband started feeling bad and told the nurse so. His blood pressure was dropping, they monitored him and took him back to ICU. They said he was having an active heart attack, they put in two stints. He remained in ICU because his heart heart was so very slow. They monitored that for a dayor two. Finally said he'd have to have a pacemaker put in. I wonder what will go wrong with him next. It seems like everytime he's about to be released something happens. Is it something new that they can do dialsis everyday now or was my husband just really bad off at the time? I need advice and words of wisdom.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
