  • bmb64,

    Glad to know that You can come here and get Help /advice and info

    Query after your Mums fall did she get an xray???

  • No they said a doctor checked her over but didnt need xray as had good movement. Feel awful now as i should have insisted.

  • Hope they check properly this time. Thinking of you and your mum. :) x

  • Thanks x

  • bmb: Possible that the doctor was right. A fall can cause bruising which can be painful in itself. So dont feel awful. I feel for you. It is a long time ago when my mother was so ill. It was the hardest time of my life as she was on the female ward of the cottage hospital where I worked. That was difficult and yet a privilege to be her nurse. Important that you drop in and talk to us. Love Pergola = I will be thinking about you xx

  • Thanks Pergola xx

  • You Never said how old your Mum is ??

    Don't ever think feel awful about NOT asking for Xray . Isn't Your Job but the Doctor that saw Her checked Her over and said "She had Good Movement ".

  • Hi b

    So sorry your Mum has been struggling. Know what it's like - a roller coaster - but as Pergola says a privilege. Hopefully they will get her sorted soon and she will be back home with you and on an even keel.

    With love


  • Thanks cofdrop hopefully when i visit tomorow i will be told whats going on as when i called tonight to see if the doc had seen her xrays i was told they couldnt discuss it with me over the phone .so worrying i just wanted to hear what they had diagnosed but just got told she was comfortable. Roll on tomorrow :-( xx

  • Hi Bmb64. Perhaps they sent your Mum home a bit early. They don't like keeping people too long who's health is compromised. My Husband went in a little while back and came out with a cold. He then gave it to me. I hope they sort her this time. You take care. I hope she is back with you soon. X

  • Update on my beautiful mum, well she came home monday night after kidney scan was clear. But they discharged her on paracetamol for her neck pain as the ward doctor didn't agree with the strong painkillers she was on.wednesday i had to take her for her results regarding her stomache complaint and see why she has lost so much weight. Went well even got discharged, yippeeee:-) but in the ambulance on the way home she started feeling poorly, feeling sick, chronic neck pain, shivering and anxious, the crew were brilliant helped me get her into bed and i called the gp out who has taken her of statins and angina tablets to see if she settles and put her on stronger painkillers. Mum staying with me this week so i can keep an eye on her, hopefully she wil start feeling better soon so we can both get a decent sleep. Thanks for listening:-) hope everyone having a pleasant day!!
