MY MOTHER IS 82 YRS OLD HAS A FIB, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND BUGLING DISK VERY BAD ARTHRITIS AND THROMBOSIS IN HER LEGS. THEY HAVE BEEN GIVIN HER MEDS FOR CIRCULATION. SHE IS OBESE AND A WEAK HEART WE WERE TOLD THIS WEEK. HER PRESSURE HAS COME UP AND HER FEVER HAS GONE DONE AND BACTERAI PNEUMONIA WENT FROM 22000 TO 1200. HER KIDNEYS ARE FUNCTIOING BETTER. IF SHE DIDNT HAVE THE PAIN THRU OUT HER BODY AS SHE DOES NOW SHE COULD HAVE WENT HOME TOMOROW. WHAT CAN I DO. ANY SUGGESTIONS. ANY ADVICE., WE WANTED TO TAKE HER OUT OF THIS HOSP. BECASUE WE WERE AFRQID THEY WERENT DPOING ALL THEY CAN DO, BUT JUST GIVING HER THE MORPHINE TO QUIET HER DOWN. . WHEN SHE FELT SICK SHE DID NOT HAVE Q COLD NOR FELL TO HURT HER BACK OR NAYTHING WHICH MAKES THIS SO UNUSUAL. ANY ADVICE WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED, OH I WQS TOLD THAT WHEN THEY DISCHARGE HER THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEND HER TO A REHAD FAC. TO HELP HER WQLK AGAIN. SHE CANT MMOVE HER LEGS AND I DONT KNOW IF THE BULGING DISK IS SO IMFLAMED THAT ITS PICHING ON HER NERVES THAT CASUEING ALL THIS PAIN. THAT SHE CANT MOVE..
