Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
OK

So what is your question for us at this point?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the doctor who treated me for the fit has left brusing and nail makes around my right should and neck what he said about my illness was no true and in a full unit where i could not talk

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
OK
I understand
But what is your medical question for us...this is a question and answer service.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i have a chest infection and i am in pain

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
OK
This can mean that you need to go back to the hospital and that the infection was not treated correctly.

It can mean you need a different antibiotic or even IV antibiotics

Is this what you are asking?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i can not go back to the hospital

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
Why is that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the hospital will not treat me as my husband signed out they will not treat me i now having troblem reading and writtngg

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
Is your breathing getting worse?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
OK
Then this can become life threatening.
So you need to go to the ER
The ER can not refuse to treat you, and they can not refuse to admit you if you need to be admitted.
Your husband can not prevent you from being re-admitted.

Make sense?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

thank

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 3 years ago.
You are welcome.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
