Uncle had a suspected heart attack (Still not 100% confirmed) after undergoing routine surgery to remove a vascular blockage in his groin. Next day he was fine on the ward and then in the early hours he apparently collapsed and has been on a ventilator and heavily sedated in ICU. He is slowly coming round now and his breathing for himself again, but is mouthing that he is dying and please let him die. This is extremely upsetting for my mum (his sister) and myself, does he mean it or is he just confused?? I just hope he is not in any pain, he keeps trying to pull his tracheostomy out. thank you for any advice.
