Hi, can someone please help me understand this?
My mom had a bad asthma attack, 15 days ago. She has been sedated with fentanyl and propofol. Also she was breathimg over the vent and they had to paralyze her muscles for 5 days.. So with that being said on Day 6 they removed the paralytic. On day 13 she was completely weaned off the propofol. And as of yesterday, the turned her fentanyl from 200 mg to 50mg. She started to wake up because her eyes follow me and blink.. And she was crying but couldnt talk because of the vent... Anyway today is a new day and doctors are concerned that she may have bad nerve damage or in other words critical illness myopathy. Is this something my mom can recover from? Im very sad, and scared.. I just want my mom
