Legal Question

Asked on: 12/20/10, 10:04 am

My son was rushed to the hospital thinking that he had the flu and because of severe pain in his kidney area, he thought he may have been passing a kidney stone. As it turned out he had Pneumonia and acute kidney failure. The Nephrologist determined that the kidneys were failing because he had taken Aleeve over a period of days, due to the severe pain of the pneumonia ( body aches, etc.).

Thank God he did not have to go on dialysis, as the antibiotics did the job of reducing his creatin levels. He spent 3 days in the hospital. We had no idea Aleeve could do so much damage. This is dangerous. Is this a matter that should be looked into legally?
