My Mum is 82, she had a pacemaker fitted in January last

This answer was rated:

My Mum is 82, she had a pacemaker fitted in January last year and had a bad chest infection following that. Prior to that she had a couple of mini strokes. She has lost so much weight and struggles to keep weight on. She is now 7st 2 and she is quite tall and looks so thin. She is having a few blank moments and forgets things but other than that is still sharp. She still has energy. She is moving a lot now, when sitting her feet move all the time. I would like to get her to see a specialist but would like to talk to someone. Can you help
JA: What are all your mother's symptoms? Has she talked to a doctor about the infection?
Customer: The infection was treated last year with antibiotics so she no longer has that.
JA: Got it. Has she used anything besides the antibiotics for this?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in her medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so.

No, she doesn’t. We’re concerned that when she collapsed and needed the pacemaker fitted that she had another stroke.
