Hi - it's the first time I've posted, although my Mum was diagnosed nearly five years ago. Mum is 83yrs, lives at home with my Dad, and is in the 'locked in' stage of her PSP. Cannot move or communicate at all, is rig/peg fed (nothing orally & all meds go through tube), and very frail. She has scopoderm patches to help stop secretions/sickness, and is now having oxygen on a more regular basis. Mum has started vomiting (at least once a day) over the past week, leading to a trip to resus last Friday, as they suspected aspiration. Investigations/xrays all showed nothing wrong and she was discharged. Paramedics called again yesterday for same reason, oxygen given and sats checked at home - again found nothing wrong. Has anyone else had this experience with vomiting as PSP progresses?
