my mum had a pacemaker fitted as heart was all over the place. they pierced her lung. she's been on oxygen but now has copd. my dad is having to do everything g for her and he is up with her most nights from 1am till 6am as she can't breathe. she is on 3 types of puffers or nebulisers but these aren't helping her much. when she talks she has a rattle which makes her raspy sounding, she isn't eating very much and has gone off tea just sipping water all the while. she's very frail and can't walk very well (has been like this for a fewyears) really need advice as to is this normal should I seek second opinion as hospital reluctant to say what she is suffering with if she is seriously ill etc. she was in hospital for 3 weeks been out two now but some days she's had to go back as so.ill and been sent home same day. so infuriating.
