In Jan. 2008 my mom started getting a weak feeling on her left side she went to the Doctor and had a head scan done. The Doctor said she had a stroke.Gave her aspirins so she took them for a week. She got very sick so the ambulance took her to the hospital . while in the emergency room she was spitting up blood bad. They did a blood transfusion of 4 pints.She had a bleeding ulcer. The doctor said he could not find any reports that she had an ulcer before this. but he is her reg. Doctor.She went in ICU for 2 weeks. She got out after getting better.The Brain doctor said that spot on her brain was nothing to worry about, even though it was the size of a walnut .So mom went to a nursing home for therapy on her left side, she was there for 8 days then got sick. She went back to the Hospital did another head scan.The brain doctor told us he dont know what it is.He did a biopsy and still dont know.He talked to the doctor in radiolligy to see if she would quallify for a good canidate for radiation but they needed to know who was going to pay first So medicaid said yes so they did 14 treatments. Her doctor told her the ONLY way to fix you would be to take your brain out of your head.After treatment she went home on mothers day 2008. We took care of her at home 24/7 She was doing pretty good for her condition. Then in Dec. she got worse stopped eating and drinking. She was like being in a coma. Then on Jan. 21, 2009 She passed away. Yes the doctors killed MOM.The wopuld not do anything for her or send her to another Doctor that did know what she had.Its in the doctors report they did not know.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
