Hubby's chin has gradually, over several weeks, worked its way downwards. It is now stuck to his chest. He can not look up and feeding is difficult. His sticky saliva accumulated, went down the 'wrong' way and caused an infection (his first). Now for the GOOD NEWS. On the first day in hospital his chin went up, to the place it is supposed to be and remind there since, hopefully for ever. The doctor does not know what caused this reversal. The only medication he has is 20mg of Amitriptylene per day plus the antibiotic and paracetamol.
On admission to hospital his oxygen level was low; he was given oxygen for 1 1/2 days. Could that have caused his hed to raise? Has anyone had a similar experience?
