Hope everyone is ok, had the doctor out today to give my dad a once over (he's been coughing more the past couple of days). Anyway he comes out puts the oximeter on his finger and his o2 is 85. He then taps his back with his 2 index fingers and listens with his stethoscope.
He said that his chest is clear but asked to see the list of medication he's on. Within seconds he says I need to withdraw 2 of your medicines.
He's not to take co-dydramol anymore and hes not to take his sleeping tablets or any sleepers under any circumstances. He then told my father that it will cause respiratory failure and starve his brain of oxygen whilst he sleeps said he'll remove them from the surgery. Then left leaving my poor father in hell of a state.
Has anyone been in this position?
Love and light x
