I was finally allowed to bring my DH home yesterday afternoon. You can't believe what this hospital has done to this man.
First off you must remember that he takes a drug called Cimzia for his auto immune disease called Crohns. He must take this once every two weeks to keep the inflammation down to a controllable level in his body.
Now with that being said, the hospital has given him an infection that they cannot find the source of in his body. It's in his blood stream so about the only way this could of been given to him is a dirty needle or by blood transfusion of which he had 3. He must be on 2 different kinds of intravenous antibiotics that he receives 2 times a day until February 28th. After that he will be on pill form for the rest of his life.
Now because of the properties of the Cimzia and that it will nullify the antibiotics that are being given to him, he cannot take that any longer. We must go to his gastrologist and find out if there is a different drug to control the Crohn's disease that will not interfere with the antibiotics. If there isn't, the hospital has essentially killed him because the Crohn's is what has caused most of the damage to his body.......lost of hearing, anuryisms, etc.
He is so depressed and so am I. What turned into a simple procedure and good news that he didn't have to go thru radiation and chemo has turned into a nightmare. He has already told me that he will never have another operation for as long as he's alive. I cannot blame him. Needless to say, we will be contacting a lawyer because this must not happen to anyone else. We pay hundreds of dollars every month for insurance and this is what it comes to.
One thing I want to point out. Not once in all the time he was going thru this in the hospital did anyone say they were sorry or any such thing. I think that is what has made me the maddest. The Bible says you must forgive but I'm having a hard time with this one.
