Demand a x-ray now. That is what I meant. He needs one and its easy to do. Im not sure why they wont do it!
Mom was in so much pain she was yelling and fighting and they were able to do it with her.
Fingers crossed. I sure hope it's nothing too serious.
I'm sorry to hear that, but I am glad there is nothing wrong with his heart, as you know, that was what my father was just in hospital with. Did they say why they have not done an x-ray yet? I'm not sure how things work in the US, but can you not ask for another doctor, one that will have your fathers best interests at heart?
I'm so sorry to read that. I'm hoping for the best outcome possible.
thanks again for all the concern and sympathy, it means a lot to come on here and see that. This morning the doc tried once more to discharge him, so he waited for hours and hours, not being told anything more this entire time, my mom and I looking up home-care options and me wanting to go hunt this idiot doctor down... until finally the physical therapist came by to try to evaluate my dad. He got him to sit up for a few minutes without extreme pain but he also said "Yeah there's no way you're going home, in fact you should be looking into rehab facilities" so as of now that's the deal. He's still there at the hospital overnight thankfully, but of course rehab costs out-of-pocket since the greedy, worthless, elitist snobs who run this country (and the poor sods who don't know any better what is best for themselves or their fellow human beings) won't grant universal healthcare reform, not even to reform our badly underfunded and stretched social security. My father worked his entire life, he's supposed to be able to retire in peace.
