My bro-in-law had heart attack 2 years back. He had 2 stents placed and on clopidagril. In 2/13, he suffered from GI bleeding. Endoscopy revealed 3 polyps, but stopped bleeding. They have changed the blood thinner. Then, they did angiogram and did ballon angioplasty. Soon after angioplasty he started with fever in ICU, but subsided the next day. After discharge, he had recurrent fevers, but resolved with Tylenol. After testing it was detected as Stephyloccocus, got 7 days of IV. After 1 week again started with high fever and intermittent bleeding while coughing. He was started on IV. After 3 days, he started with rapid breathing and in hospital while on nebulization, bleeding increased. His condition has become critical. He was immediately placed in MICU and ventillation. Doctors hv tried all the tests, but the bleeding is intermittently returning for the past 2 weeks. Doctors are trying to do biopsy for cancer. He is still on intermittent ventillation and his condition is still critical. Can anyone please suggest how to go forward. Here in India, doctors are really not able to specify his disease.
