He has difficulty swallowing liquids-he tends to mildly asperate, whereas he has no difficulty swalling solids. He insists on coffee every morning and hasn't any problem there as well. The problem is he has just recovered from a UTI (I think). His urine outflow is poor, dark or cloudy and has a horrible fishy odor. Our hospice team is great but they offer no answers. He has been terribly constipated/impacted, and I must manually un-impact him for every BM. Hospice has increased his Senecot and added everthing known to man that should normally blast the roof off the house. Still nothing. Does anyone have any advice or experienced this situation? I should also mention that within the past 3 weeks I have seen a noticable decline. Although he still loves food, he takes longer and longer to eat it. I am just worried hill will suffer more than he already does due to lack of fluids. UTI's and impaction are painful.
