Sounds like a complex situation in an unhappy woman. Alcohol causes its own problems, and other problems when combined with various meds ; habitual drunkenness leads to self-neglect which plays into a whole range of other health problems. And if she is used to a significant regular intake of alcohol, any situation ( like hospital admission ) in which she is suddenly deprived of that alcohol, whether totally or relatively, can cause withdrawal problems, too.
Many alcoholics / problem-drinkers ( its not really fruitful to debate the exact term to use ) use heavy denial to avoid facing the extent of their self-inflicted problems, and don't want to talk about it. Its unfortunate if she has even been in hospital, but the doctors have apparently not grasped and dealt with this important aspect of her problems.
Unfortunately, there's not much that can be don with an alcohiolic / problem drinker unless and until they face the fact that they Have a problem and that they ARE a problem, and that they need heklp and must sincerely follow p[roper expert advice.
