I'm living in Australia and writing this to get advise for my mum 60 (who lives in the UK) who was diagnosed with Heart failure last year, and my dad who is caring for her.
My mum has not seen anyone. She was referred to a specialist and has heard nothing. Her GP will not see her, phone consultation only.
She is gaining alot of weight fast.
Is retaining alot of water
Her legs and ankles are swollen and have now started to leak.
She can not walk to the toilet or talk without getting out of breath
She is sick whenever eats.
Can not lay down so is trying to sleep sat up.
The GP keeps changing her meds or will prescribe anti nausea meds after a phone consult.
I have told my father to request a referral for oxygen and for a referral for any home assistance available.
Any advise on where to turn to , to get my mum seen by a Dr would be amazing and to any help that they may be able to receive.
Thank you in advance.
