6 weeks ago she was feeling unwell going to the toilet alot and passing blood but she had diverticulitis. She went into hospital was in there about two weeks and suddenly has issues breathing. They took 2L of fluid from her lungs Last week. She also was diagnosed with heart failure before she went into hospital but not sure what stage but I think early stage. When in hospital she did have issues with her kidneys but they seem fine now. She was non responsive yesterday but they put a non invasive mask on and it helped alot but today her lungs are starting to fill with fluid again. They sent her for a body scan today and said she has enlarged lymph nodes under her arm and suspect it could he multiple myeloma and took blood and sent to another hospital. A haematologist is coming to see her tomorrow. She has high levels of calcium and carbon dioxide in her blood.

How can I call u

Her history and description you mentioned are highly suggestive of cancer, anemia, congestive heart failure, secondary lung affection, etc.

She would need a battery of investigations like PET scan, peripheral blood smear, echocardiography, etc to exactly pinpoint the diagnosis and severity of medical issues.

Thanks for talking on the phone.
