My mom is in a nursing home and has apparently had the hip fracture for 2+ weeks. She's already so compromised by multiple medical problems, but until now, has managed to stay ahead of cancer. Had a colon cancer in 2000, but colon resection got that, no chemo or radiation needed. However, all these medical problems with heart, diabetes, etc. have rendered her not a good candidate for any more surgeries. So with this new development, hip fracture, we are faced with few options. Looks like she's a really poor risk for surgery so will almost for sure have to just let nature take its course. She has been nonambulatory for years, so that's not an issue, but I am concerned about chronic pain and suffering. I am very torn up, not sure what to expect, or what to do. Any advice or words of wisdom from someone who has "been there" would be much appreciated. What to expect?
