Hi! I just found out this site.. and thinks that this will be a really big help for me to understand my boyfriend's situation. My bf is 40yrs old.. currently he is in the icu and on the state of coma for 10days already. I am really worried coz i dont understand a thing! I am here in south korea.. i dont understand korean and speak also.. the situation is like this.. im dating my bf for 2yrs.. i know he is sick when i met him bet never in that 2yrs that he answered me evrytime i ask what his ilness is. So when he got in coma on may 3.. thats when his brother told me that he has tuberculosis.. and thats the first time i met his family! I know his tb is not the pneumonia type coz he dont have those common symptoms.. until now i dont know what kind of tb he has. May 5.. they told me he has meningitis.. and still dont know what kind of meningitis! Before the coma happened.. he always have fever and headache for almost a month.. and a week before that he told me he always throw up.. yesterday when i visit him.. his fever is going down.. and the first time i saw his open his eyes for like 2mins!! I was happy though the nurse is explaining me something i cant understand!!! Please tell me if anybody here encounter or experience like this.. tell me if he is gonna be ok? Can they cure the meningitis? Can they cure his tb? I want to ask the doctor a lot of question but he cant speak english.. im just always waiting for his brother to tell my friend about my bf's c9ndition. Im worried.. its painful.. i feel like im dying now..
