Re: Not sure what to do !!!

Sounds like it was a big day @Shaz51, glad that you have had some communication from the hospital and that your mum is doing well at home. Do you think she'll have to go back to the hospital soon?

Re: Not sure what to do !!!

Keeping track of things essential @Shaz51.

Re: Not sure what to do !!!

yes she will @Ali11 , @Darcy , with reaccuring bowel obstructions , it will keep on happening because of the scans tissues and adhensions in her bowel ,they will get blocked again

she has been home for a week so far , which is good BUT it could be next week or 2 weeks times before she has to go back

Re: Not sure what to do !!!

Hi @Shaz51 

 

Your Mum seems very happy at home and it's tough she keeps getting bowel obstructions - I know these can be really dramatic when they happen - and it must be scary

 

Can they just treat your mum when she is having one of these and make her comfortable - it seems to me she really feels enough is enough about all of these procedures

 

This is such a hard time for her and for you

 

Wishing both of you the best

she is happy just doing this and you are right my second mum , she has had enough
