My brother went in as an outpatient to have his yearly colonoscopy they couldn't do it because the medication he was given to drink to clean him out didn't work so they gave him another batch of it and told him to come back the next day. He did. Same results so they gave him another dose of it and told him to come back the next day. A few short weeks later his kidneys failed and he had to go on dialysis. Why did the kidneys fail. Because the medication they give you to do the colonoscopy can cause the kidneys to shut down. A few years later the fistula they used to do his dialysis failed so they did another one in his shoulder. He complained something wasn't right. It hurt but no one bothered to check it out until it was too late. It became infected and the infection traveled to the hip he had had replaced. (infection feeds off metal). He ended up with a bone infection they had to take out the hip prosthesis and put in a medicated placer while they fought the infection. It didn't work and he died a horrible death after several weeks. In my brother's case all of this took place at the same hospita

My mother was given Levaquin for a minor infection a month later she was dead because her kidneys shut down caused by the Levaquin. Levaquin is in the Flouroquinalone family of drugs. Included in that family are Avelox, Cipro, and about 4 others. Right on the websites for these drugs it says should not to be given to anyone over 60 unless it is a life threatening infection. Never to be given as a prophylactic to prevent infection during surgery. The side effects of these drugs are horrible. Drs are not told any of this by the pharmaceutical companies. So Drs think these are some great wonder drugs and they hand them out like candy.
