I wanted the ER to call my doctor into the hospital when I was there but he never showed. Why?

Not on call: Physicians can't be on call all the time - it is likely they felt that the issue did not require him/her to be there and it is likely they contacted him or her and gave him information.

I have been having auras all day on and off as well as being very dizzy and nauseous. Could this just be a partial seizure? I'm not sure if I should go to the ER or wait until I can call doctor Monday.

It : It sounds like he had some sort of procedure for a toenail on 2 toes, if i'm reading your question correctly (help us help you by using punctuation). If this is correct, bleeding is normal, and they should have warned you about it. But now, at 2 days, there shouldn't be any new blood. If he's currently bleeding, then my answer is yes, take him back to the er. If it's old, dry blood on the bandage, there is no need to panic. But i assume you have a follow-up appointment to check on this in the next few days, right? ...Read more
