Hello everyone, bless you guys. Could anybody tell me about bleeding from varices. My wife has gastric V and we are about 15 min. from a small hospital and are members of airevac that can get her to a larger hospital 45 min. away by car. Our local medical team is aware of her condition and if they get that call they will start the helicopter asap. What can I do before anyone arrives beside try to keep everything as calm as possible? What is involved in banding? We are meeting with an endocrinologist this month to handle her care in this case, but again he is 45 min. away. If it was possible I would move us across the street from a major hospital, but... I know that there are many variables to consider but just some general info from someone who has been thru this will be helpful.
Praying for everyone here. Turfdoc.
