B went into hospital 9 days ago with groin pain. After several scans and lack of peg feeding for 33 hours, they decided not to operate on the two hernias that they had found. ( Our doctor had already found them by hand examination, 50 hours before they found them and after they did two scans!)
B became comatose and slept for three days.I rang our Hospice Community nurse and she recommended a full palliative care assessment.
B. is now in a palliative care unit at the hospital. Could his sleepiness be due to previous lack of food and medication or PSP?
We are Hoping that we can get him home with some sort of nursing support. ( We are still waiting for our CHC appeal meeting.)
B. spun his wheelchair and fell out of it whilst on holiday. He sustained head injuries but three days later, his right hand drooped and is now useless. The doctors think this is due to PSP. Do any of our community recognise this symptom?
Any suggestions would be welcome. X
