Thanks. I took her twice now to a&e as her doctor said to take her as he was at a bit of a lose as to diagnosis. they did an xray and said it was clear. possibly a trapped nerve but that could be caused by her constantly in pain and not lying or standing properly. she cant really stand still at all just rocking to ease the pain. a&e just said they didnt know and sent her home. she is usually so active and a very young 79, travelling, gardening etc all the time. should i take her again and insist on ct scan? id be really grateful for your help. she lives alone and I will go again in the morning. im scared to do the wrong thing. just want her out of pain
thank you. i will let you know how i get on. i appreciate it a lot#
well I took my mum at 11am and finally at 4 they gave her some orimorph as well as the tramadol and paracetamol - they will do a CT scan but can't right now as its the weekend and has to be urgent. they have kept her in 24 hours and will see tomorrow if they keep her in til they can do a scan or send her home with the painkillers. I hope they keep her in Im worried about her taking the meds without anyone around! I will see her tomoro morning. worried about leaving her there but i need some sleep and have a 12 year old at home - shes with my 24 year old son so not alone. I just remembered tho that she takes a tablet for thyroid which she doesnt have with her. should i call the hospital or will it be ok for a day?
