Please can anyone help? My husband, who has varices, portal hypertension and some ascites, as well as an enlarged spleen and gallstones, has started to experience severe pain which 60mg of codeine hasn't shifted. He has pain most days but not so severe as today's. He says he had awful pain in the night, too. Is this new kind of pain a sign that he may be about to have an internal bleed - are they related? He refuses to get any medical attention as they usually think he's having a heart attack despite his protests, do unnecessary tests and send him home...I am very concerned about him. Thank you for reading this xxxx
