My Father in Law has PSP but because he had Neuropathic problems previously we do not know how long he had it before he was told he also has PSP. Is there a way of knowing what stage of the illness he is at.
At the last meeting with the specialist he recommend and that he had a PEG fitted. I have a few concerns about this and wondered what other sufferers/carers think.
I am worried about him having an anesthetic at his age (80) and also the risk of infection from the PEG itself. Does he need to be lying flat when the PEP is in use.If he is lying flat it casuses him to cough and choke. Thank you in advance for your replies.
