JustMe Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 Husbands right lung collapsed, has been in local hospital for 7 days...waiting to be transferred to hospital in Boston for them to put in a bronchial stent. Just waiting around for days is so frustrating...does this affect the lungs ability to re-inflate...all this time doing nothing? He wanted to come home so badly, but decided to stay when they explained that out-patient to Boston would take much longer than hospital-to-hospital transfer. Nurses have finally figured out how to keep his pain managed...2mg of dilaudid IV every 3 hours is the only thing that works... In the meantime, I can't schedule any consults with Dana-Farber or even think about getting him started with the clinical trial until the stent is done... *bangs head on desk* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
