hi, last weekend my grandad was rushed up to hospital, with severe pains to his chest and breathlessness. since being in there almost a week now they have diagnosed that both of his valves in his heart are leaking and his kidneys and livers are not working 100% and also since being in hospital he has not been able to urinate as he normally does, only a small amount at a time (my grandad normally takes water pills but hasnt been given them in there) a couple of days ago he was given a urine bag to remove excess fluid because his stomach was swelling and his legs are slightly swollen as well. im posting this in the kidneys and also the heart forums please can anyone help me understand what is going on as doctors are not really telling us or my grandad much at all.
