Space aliens and bugs
Type of Spiritual Experience
I suspect this is misdiagnosis, if he had chest pains he probably had a bad heart and all the rest of the symptoms are incidental . The morphine is the biggest contributor to the hallucinations.
A description of the experience
My father has been in the hospital now going on 18 days. He went in for chest pains after falling. Discovered he has gout in his knee which was killing him and then found out he needed his gallbladder taken out. They were giving him morphine and phenergan for the pain which caused him to hallucinate.
Well, first they could not do the surgery because his kidneys were not functioning well enough. Then after 8 days in the hospital they decided to do the surgery once his kidneys had improved. The surgery went well but an hour after the surgery he went into congestive heart failure. He was on a ventilator for five days.
Once off the ventilator he has not been the same. He is having severe hallucinations and this has been six days off the ventilator. He is seeing space aliens, bugs everywhere and all kinds of other things. We are going on three weeks of this and he is still in the hospital. I wonder if coming home will help but I am also scared to bring him home. Anyone have any suggestions?
