I have a friend who's just out of hospital with chronic pancreatitis ... I'm not sure how long he's had it for, but I think this was a bad case ( he was in hospital for over a week) ... I think he said his pancreas was at 20% efficiency.
I was talking to one of his family members last night because I was concerned that he is drinking a lot, and asking to borrow money (I presume to buy alchohol). He's drinking secretly but I know he's doing it, probably about 3 bottles of Rum / Whisky a week!.
The family member seemed alarmed to learn that he was still drinking as they were present when he was admitted to hospital he had told the doctors he had quit drinking X years ago. My initial though was that he shouldn't be drinking because of the medication he is on (there's a lot), but now i realise there are far further reaching consequences, so I'm not sure what to do.
Should I phone the hospital and tell them he lied about drinking?
He obviously knows he shouldn't be drinking so nothing I can say to him will change that ... I'm at a loss as of what to do.
Any advice on how best to proceed?
