My husband is in the hospital and had a SBO.

My husband is in the hospital and had a SBO. He also has retroperitoneal fibrosis which is affecting his GI tract. He had nausea and vomiting for a week before they got it stopped with a NG tube. They have done every test possible and it doesn't show them why he is having stomach pains which caused him to not be able to eat enough to substain him. He's now getting TPN thru a PICC line. They gave him Rifaximin thinking maybe some bacteria was causing his pain but he had no diarrhea. His stomach seemed to hurt more after taking the Rifaximin. Do you think he should continue the Rifaximin?

hi doctor, recently i came to know that i have pco and my gynecologist prescribed my husband to have a semen analysis. we took the semen sample in a plastic pot bought from a pharmacy. we went to a reputed hospital in my city which is only 5 min distance from our house. but the doctors there said that the semen should be ejaculated there in the hospital and they rejected to take our sample. i want to know that is there any legal problem to take the sample bought from home and why they rejected?

My husband s blood sugar level is 480 at 11:00 a.m. after a peanut butter/jelly sandwich. He is on 40 units of inuslin in the a.m. and 12 units at mealtime. Should his doctor hospitalize him to get his levels under control.. He was diagnosed Type II about 15 years ago and went on Insulin injections about 2 years ago. The past 4 weeks the levels have been consistently over 300 at the a.m. fast.
