My husband has severe heart disease, several peripheral vascular disease and COPD. He has coped quite well u till a couple of weeks ago when he lost feeling in both his legs - but at the same time was in such pain he was screaming out. The doctor could find no pulse and said they would refer him to a vascular clinic but that they felt there was nothing else to be done. For the first time, I feel my husband has given up and I just don't know how to cope - with both the pain and also supporting him. Does anybody have any idea what is likely to happen next? The doctor won't talk to me without my husband present and I know that my husband wouldn't be able to cope with any more negative news. If this isn't the right place to ask for some help and advice, maybe somebody could point me in the right direction. Thank you so much. Jan
