Hi there everyone,
I'm writing on behalf of my Mum who has COPD. SHE IS IN HOSPITAL at the moment with exacerbation of the condition. In fact this is the 23rd time she has been in this year. She's also got spinal stenosis and epilepsy, but as we know The NHS will fundamentally only deal with one chronic issue at a time, but the whole package of problems that she
has means hospital visits are very uncomfortable for her. Her consultant at Aintree Hospital says she has something resembling "floppy airways" which is the main reason why she has a season ticket at Aintree!
Has anybody been told anything similar to this? ? And how do you cope with it? BTW I am also My mums carer as well as 4 visits a day from social services caring... That's a different story but one that makes my blood boil. Thank you for reading
