He can't find out that any1 talked 2 his doctor. My fiance has 2 have a pituatory tumor removed and he also has very high blood pressure.
Your fiance's Dr should know this before he has surgery. Do you think there is any way you could talk to your fiance and tell him he could really have problems with his anesthesia and it could be life threatening for him to with hold this information from his Drs? If you think there is no way that your fiance will disclose the information himself then you may need to tell his Dr because it is definitely something they should know, especially for anesthesia. You could tell his Dr and be sure he/she understands that it could cause a big problem if your fiance finds out you "ratted him out"! Maybe the Dr could insist on a urine drug screen prior to surgery which may lead to either the Dr finding out or lead your fiance into disclosing it himself.
It is a hard situation for sure! Is it meth as in methadone or methamphetamine? If it is methamphetamine, no wonder he has high blood pressure! Do you think your fiance would physically harm you if he found out you told on him? If so, are you sure you want to marry someone like that? I know it is none of my business but it concerns me that someone would want to be with someone who would harm them. I think honesty is very important in a relationship and I know you are doing this out of your love for him and for the possibility he could come to harm if no one knows about his addiction. Perhaps you could use an angle like that to get him to disclose the info to his Drs himself. It would really be for the best if he told the Drs himself. Drs have to keep confidentiality and they most likely will not get him into trouble with the police or anything but they will want to address the problem and well that they should. Good Luck to you! It is a very delicate situation for you for sure! I hope you can talk him into disclosing the info for himself!
His doctor needs to know this information ASAP! My husband had a pituary tumor & had a team of 5 doctors. His primary, a neurosurgeon, a orthopaedic surgeon, an endoctrinologist, & a plastic surgeon. He may well have problems after this surgery with presipidous diabetes (sp)meaning his blood sugars could go way out of control. My husbands were over 600 so he had to have insulin. If they do a nasal tumor removal, they will probably take a piece of cartliage from the nose
& a piece of muscle tissue usually from the thigh to put back in place of what is in between the nasal area
& the pituatary gland. It is a very big deal that his doctors know about the Methadone. If he's on it & they don't know they could very well OD him on pain meds following this surgery. If your relationship is stable & you love him, if he says he won't tell them then you need to. You may very well save his life. Most doctors are very discreet when they hear this kind of info, so don't worry about that. PLEASE contact the doctor as soon as possible.
It's crystal meth I am referring to and his tumor is so large he has to have brain surgery. It can't be removed thru the nasal cavity. He has missed alot of dr appts because of his drug use but when he does make it 2 one he either stops his drug use for a couple of days so he will show up clean or else smuggle clean urine from someone else in. He had pills the dr gave him to help shrink the tumor down but he doesnt take them. He is also trying to collect permanent social security benefits. I should let them know too because once he gets his tumor removed and stays on meds he will be prescribed to balance out his hormones he should be able to function as a contributing member of society. He told me he wants the "free" money. It sickens me. He is 45 yrs old.
