Hi. Mum has recently been in hospital due to falling and breaking her collar bone. She is now really wheezy and choking when drinking, and has a cough. She is already on thickened fluids. I have called the GP out twice, but apparently it is not on her chest, so I wondered if she has aspirated in hospital ( don't know if they always thickened fluids when we weren't there). The GP prescribed Gaviscon, which I thought was for indigestion/heartburn?.
Any ideas please.
Mum is sleeping much more now and seems much more fatigued and distressed.
