Cutting Real Old Fiberglass Tub


Just got off the phone with my Dad. He just bought an older house (early 1950ish) and he was telling me that he was removing a fiberglass bath tub yesterday. He said that he cut it in half to make it easier to handle. Shortly after he said that he was hit with complete body shakes and still feels really crappy.

Do you guys think this is symptoms of just inhaling fiberglass or something more?

I don't believe you're asking this on a DIY forum!
Get your dad to a doctor ASAP!

Fiberglass will not do that, but various medical problems can cause it. Low blood sugar, THE FLU.

12 Penny have you ever dealt with a cranky old person who won't just go to the doctor right away. Yes I told him to do that but when I got off the phone I posted this to get more info. This post may result in helpful information to motivate my dad to get to the doctor faster or helpful information to the doctor. Thanks

Not trying to be an a@@. But sometimes serious symptoms
need to be acted upon immediately.
