Terminally ill mother w/cancer has sever constipation and hasn't gone in over a week. Nurses and hospice care has been trying everything but nothing works. Mom is in severe distress and pain. What is next steps? What are options now? How can I help? She calls me crying and is very weak. I need help!
went to bathroom for a week....the
"Nurse" that does know what to do
And she is screaming in pain?
CALL THE DOCTOR ASAP
This is unacceptable for a person...
One thing they stress is "comfort"
If she has that much pain......
She needs to he examed asap, more
than likely she will need an enama
and maybe more. I suspect she
Is also dehydrated and weak from
whoever did the meds should have
Been on alert and started stool
Softeners when pain meds started.
I urge you to follow up on this quickly.
I have personal knowage of this
And it did not have a good outcome.
May God be with you
Put dried prunes (10) in blender,it's became like a jam and mix with a couple of scoops of your mom's favorite icecream .When my boyfriend who had colan cancer, I gave him 2 or 3. tea spoon when he was having trouble with BM.
Try researching this and I believe you will find other testimonials. I hope you get some relief.
