(pls refer to my previous post to understand my dad's condition)
hello friends.. help.
I scanned thru the forum to find if frequent bowel movement and/or loose stools is often found in PSP patients. But appears that constipation is more common, so wondering what is happening with dad.
No medicine + probiotic appears to work. He has been passing loose stools, 4-6 times a day for the past week or so. His tummy is bloated and his nurse had suggested antacid and course gets over today. Still his tummy appears larger (looks more because he has lost weight in the other areas) more in the evenings.
Dad is otherwise quite drowsy and tired, totally bedridden, refuses to stay on his wheel chair more than few minutes. Keeps asking us to move him back to bed. Speaks little bit. Quite aware of whats happening around if he isn't sleeping. Appetite reduced, still oral but pureed foods, aspires occasionally with or without food, aspiration certainly happens with fluids. Not sure what stage this is all in. He looks good on certain days, otherwise on many other days.
