On Nov. 25th, 2014, my wife went to bed only to be awoken at 1:00 am in the morning with the most severe pain she had ever had. I called 911 and had her brought to the ER at out local hospital where they diagnosed pancreatitis. The only way that they could stabilize her vitals was to put her into a medically induced coma with a fentnyl drip and another drug. They finally got her stabilized but infections were cropping up and a pseudo cyst was forming. At this point I had her transferred to anothe hospital where she is still in ICU to this day. She has had several procedures ans surgeries and is heavily sedated with Dilaudid, Fentynl, Seraquil and Clonipine. She has many drains as her lungs have fuid around them. She currently has a trachea and this is the third ventilator that she has been on. They say they are trying to wean her off of it but it's taking a very long time and they tell me, (I'm her husband) that it is a very long recovery period. Is there anybody out there with similar experience? I'm very distarught and concerned about my wife.
