When my mom was in the ER, they gave her Vancomycin. She began having a bad reaction "redman's syndrome" and they stopped it and gave her Benadryl. Then she began throwing up (sorry, tmi) Later on, I find out that since my mom takes Pentamidine, she is not supposed to get Vancomycin. The Vancomycin can cause elevated liver enzymes and elevated bilirubin. Ugh...guess what happened to my mom this morning?!?...her bloodwork showed elevated liver enzymes and bilirubin. Now the doctors need to see what her morning bloodwork shows...if enzymes are elevated and bilirubin is elevated, they are going to do an ERCP. My mom is anxious about
the procedure...any advice???
(Corrected for spelling.)
