My husbands PSP is as advanced, yet I don’t think he’s in the final stage. He seems to be sleeping later in the morning . I put him into bed very early now due to pressure sores. He has a alternating pressure mattress which helps. He is non-verbal. I am wondering if he is just sleeping more, or if he is awake during the night and I am not aware. Any ideas ?
Also, I am concerned that he has a difficult time having a bowel movement. His stools are soft and often realease when he is transferred (not good and difficult) . Sometimes it is a week or more. Nurse has suggested stool softeners, but the problem seems to be in his body’s ability to move his bowels. This is not a pleasant subject, thanks for reading. You are all wonderful.
