Yes she has pain that comes and goes and can be very very strong, she says an 8 or 10 on the pain scale of 1-10. The morphine helped but it may not last. She has vicodin that she will take home, but she has not taken it yet. She feels like she could throw up at any time, but has not yet thrown up. She is able to drink fluids and ate some soup and food today. She does have pain when urinating and the no longer think she has shingles, I guess that was a misdiagnosis yesterday.
So after everything I have described, what level of seriousness would you rate her condition? Can you die from this? Can it get fatal quickly and without warning? How common is it? Is that level of pain normal?
