An unusual remedy for itching caused by bile/jaundice

If in hospital: Fill a plastic glove (medical one - usually the blue ones worn by nurses/doctors) with ice cubes - seal - hold in the place of the worst itching - if everywhere: distribute around the places.

If at home: use frozen veg bags - hold against the area itching.

This was shared with us by another fellow patient :)

Good tip shared. How Was the consultant? You were worried about one of them not being in agreement to list your husband. Hope it went well.

Hello Cibble, it actually went really well... We raised all our concerns and they reassured us that it was a misunderstanding and actually they want to make sure he gets the support as soon as possible... they all meet at the end of this week to discuss/decide on listing - so fingers crossed!
