diabetes to my 63 yrs old fathers
Dev_Indian posted:
my father having diabetes from last yrs, he is a chain smoker as well drink alcohol before meal every night. Now his condition is serious kidney problem (Creatnine 6 and urea 250) for which he undergoes dialysis and after that his creat 3 and urea about 80-110. On diagnosis he found TB on his chest which doctor told 10-12 years old. He got 2 minor heart attack for which angioplasty was done where 2 valves were found to be blocked. Dialysis is still going on but he got breathing problem and on oxygen mask. His whole body is too weak and bed sores all over his buttocks. Doctors told that to stop antibiotics. Is there any sign of recovery as we spent lots of money, economically we facing a lots of problem or u can say we are financially weak, daily ICU charges + dialysis charges + expensive medications. Is there any ray of hope. Every body is in tension in our family. Doctors do not reply clearly, sometimes they say this, sometimes that. But we are dependent on them as we can not do nothing by seeing father's condition.

It does not sound good but I would let him pass on happy. Obviously someone in the family is buying him the cigarretes and alcolhol....
