In Dec. my Aunt had a cut in her toe, that then possibly led to a staphylococcus infection in her blood. Dr.s then realized two of her valves were bad and performed a heart surgery but had to induce her in a coma because the bleeding wouldn t stop (she was a diabetic). They left her heart open for 1-2 days to help bleeding and today woke her up. They then realized she needed a pacemaker but was going to wait because her WBC was high and she had a fever. Its been 14 hours since they woke her from coma but no response. Could she have had brain damage from the coma?

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
