He has stage 5 renal failure, hypertention, diabetes. He went in with severe weakness and nausea with inability to eat. he cannot stand or barely move now, he has had blood clots in the lungs and legs, pneumonia, so much fluid retention that it is leaking from his arms even after dialysis, he can barely eat, he started bleeding internally and vomiting blood but he had surgery to correct the bleeding. he cannot control his bowels anymore and has had a high white blood cell count this whole time. I just need to find what could be wrong.
