My mum had a massive stroke back in Aug 2021.
It’s been a nightmare ever since.
She’s paralysed down her right (what was her dominant) side.
Which means no walking, driving and now is being hoisted everywhere by two carers four times a day, and she has to wear adult pads. So her mood is extremely low.
There are a lot of issues we need advice on but our two biggest priorities for her are:
- That she has had a massive loss of appetite since having the stroke and has lost roughly half her body weight in 10 months! She basically doesn’t fancy anything to eat. Literally, a couple of teaspoons a day at best.
- She is suffering from a really bad bed sore that got infected down to the bone. So is in a lot of pain, even with the 20 tablets a day that she is on.
I could go on and on regarding our infuriation at times with the local hospital and the fact that they don’t seem to know their left from their right most of the time, but not sure I’ve got enough characters left in this message to go through it all, maybe I’ll put it into another post.
Any advice is greatly appreciated to help with either of my mum’s issues.
