Hi,

I am so sorry about your fiance. Please talk to the doctors about this or get a second opinion in that hospital, but if you trust in the docotors you are using then you need to believe they are doing everything they can to help her.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you both!
Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
