My dad had severe abdominal pains, please help him

My dad goes into emergency Monday with severe abdominal pains. After two days of testing, they conclude: He has an aneurysm that is leaking, on his aorta . Due to his overall bad health, they said he won t survive surgery . They are treating with pain medication until the end. They said days, weeks, maybe months. I m curious, how long ? Any way of knowing a little more accurate ?

I have been having sclerotherapy treatments for my varicose veins. After 4 treatments they are not having the desired. Effect -they are not working. I have been told that horsechestnut may help. The only meds I am currently taking are one omega 3 tablet, a vitamin d and multivitamin daily. Is horsechestnut a good alternative, and would it interact with my daily meds, as outlined above?

I am a registered nurse who's husband had bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphies through lap surgery in 2/10. He has had ED for a few years and has been using Levitra. Since the surgery he can no longer ejaculate. He is 67 years old and we have always had a good sex life. He has been checked for PAD and is negative for that. He developed multiple PE's 2 weeks post-op and was extensively tested by a vascular surgeon, oncologist, endocrinologist for underlying disease and thankfully nothing came back as a serious problem. The surgeon, with whom I worked with in the OR said, "I did 2000 lap repairs and my husband is the second pt. to develop PE's. He is sexually frustrated and his urologist doesn't seem to have any answers. Any advice would be welcomed. Carol
