My 82 year old has a bad nose bleeding?
I have had him in the ER and his nose was packed. after three days and still bleeding. The doc says we have to wait to see. I think a vain must have busted in his nose. He looks so Bad I think he,s on the way out. The blood was gusshing out . OMG
If you have a family doctor, call and let him or her know about the problem. A nose bleed should not continue for three days. In an older person and possibly fragile person, it is especially dangerous.
The patient should have blood tests and a full physical exam. Older people can develop anemia and other blood diseases that can threaten their health and well-being.
If you have to go back to the ER, insist on a complete exam, preferably by another doctor.
Take him to the ER, like ten minutes ago. The doctor isn't the one who has to deal with medical bills and whatnot after a death, not to mention the emotional issues. Demand, in the nicest way possible, that you aren't leaving the ER until his nose has stopped bleeding and he is well.
Is the blood dark red or bright red?
Were diagnostic test done while in ER?
