My husband went for his 3 month CT scan Friday. He's a three year survivor of squamous ec. He gets a call that the CT revealed a hole in the esophagus and a blood clot in the vein of the liver.
Of course that means driving to the U of Chicago again in rush hour traffice which is horrendous. He gets there, no bed so it's sit in admitting. He sends me home before it's dark, no one wants to drive in the South Side of Chicago at night.
They hook him to ivs, nothing by mouth and nothing is done. Sat..nothing is done, Sunday nothing is done. Monday, a contrast test shows no leak. He is also told that what was seen on the CT were false images.
I'm very glad I wasn't there to hear that. We had to race him there like it was life or death and then find out this. Now he has to start eating all over and has lost weight again.
Unbelievable and of course they were going to put in a stent and a sleeve but not on a weekend since they don't have good outcomes on the weekend. Remember, no emergencies on weekends. I'm still fuming. It's never good when I'm fuming.
Oh and he is NED for cancer.
