What happened to my sister?
She needs medical attention, which she gets in spurts - trauma center. She currently is at home with a feeding tube, iv’s and colonstomy bag waiting for her internal digestive system to heal so she can have her 12th or 13th surgery to make her a stomach???? We’re not really sure. She just got out of the local hospital for pancreaitis - due to enzyme levels???
Feb 2005 - gall bladder surgery
Apr 2005 - esophogus surgery (cutting off damaged bottom and tying to stomach)
June 2005 - trauma emergency surgery due to dead stomach (esophogus tied too tight to stomach causing twisting and folding of stomach cutting off blood supply)
July - present - 10 - 12 surgeries correcting prior surgeries (1st sugery had to be redone due to feeding her spaghetti and broccili within wek after initial surgery - bottom of stomach opened up; 2nd surgery redone due to too much fluid given causing pin holes in stomach and fluid build up in body, plus much much more of same. 1st trauma center rejected further treatment due to ‘out of state’ medical only paying 25% of cost - original surgeon said ‘not fair to those who live in state’. 2nd trauma center in state and has helped tremendously; however, surgeon moved 1/1/07, and current surgeon doesn’t respond to local drs?? Is there a medical oversight group to whom I could contact so we don’t ignore or ‘drop’ the ball on my sister? PLEASE HELP
