My son went to a gastrenologist (sp) August 29, his blood test for hep or diabetes, etc were negative, he stated "inflamed liver" and sent him home to follow a special diet and come back once a week, and no work for 30 days. My son did not make it to his one week appt as he steadily went down hill, no energy, nauseous, no appetite, weak, shaky I advised him to go to ER sooner but he did not listen. At his ER visit, the doctor immediately referred him to a bigger/better hospital, he had liver AND kidney failure by this time, and died 9 days later in the hospital. I am angry the doctor did not test him better on August 29, he should of been submitted then, maybe he would still be here for his 3 young children and high school sweetheart. He was only 36 years old and had much more years to live. He drank alcohol, but was not a daily drinker, he drank when he was upset such as losing a loved one, he was allergic to alcohol also. got red faced and hot if he drank. My question is, is it common that a doctor wouldn't treat right away? I mean, the 2nd day after he was sent home he was so weak and shaky he couldn't drive himself or walk around the house without being pained. I am devastated and feel he should of been treated right away it was like he was sent home to pass.
