Apart from this site I have had no support at all for caring for my totally dependent husband
He has diagnosed in February with stage 4 liver cirrhosis,alcoholic hepatitis and bilateral pneumonia
Since being home he has been in bed ,breathless ,high pulse ,BP very low.
Wednesday I felt he was becoming more unwell,I phoned my GP explaining how sick he was ,I was also worried as he hadn't had his bowels open .I was crying for help ,all she did was ask a pharmacist for a laxative.
The next day I felt he was worse,despite him saying he was fine ,I called 111 who sent a doctor out,he was diagnosed with sepsis from infected ascities
I just feel I'm left on my own to cope .while I don't want carers tending to his physical needs ,it would I feel be helpful to have a health professional call occasionally
