Lymphoid Hyperplasia

My husband is finally back from the hospital barely, we were back for 5 minutes and he started bleeding with diarrhea. I called the hospital they said to call 911, I did the paramedics came and accessed him. My grown man of a husband started to cry, he did not want to go back to the hospital. I don't blame him, it was not a good experience we will not be back at that hospital again, very poor care & no communication. The paramedics took his blood pressure & once my husband heard that is was still OK, he decided he was not going to the hospital, the paramedics made him sign a release that he refused to go. He is doing OK - at the moment. Maybe he got hemorrhoids from being in bed for 4 days I don't know. I will be calling the doctor today and the Mayo clinic which is not even close to our state. To see if they can help him, his doctor at the U of Washington told the hospital, that he does not have Crones - but Lymphoid Hyperplasia with an unknown cause. He told him that he can not help him and does not know where to send him. This was news to us, since the U of Washington specialist is the one who diagnosed him with Crones and just in Sept of 08 had told me that he was positive that he had Crones, since I have doubted it all along. He has many more signs of Lymphoma but they say he does not have that.

What to do, just pray and support him and hope he can hang in there for someone to help.

I am sorry to hear your husband is still not doing well. I live in the Pacific Northwest too and have always thought the UW had all the answers. Well if you listen to them they do....Hang in there you and your husband are in my prayers. Hope the Mayo Clinic can give you some answers and solutions to his problems....

Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet hubby. It is such a helpless feeling to see someone you love in pain and not be able to take it away. Crones runs (no pun intended!) in our family. I know what that means! So sorry and I hope you can find something that will help soon. My prayers will be with him.
