I have a relative I'm taking care of who is dying of incurable hyperparathyroidism. On top of the confusion that comes with this disease, she takes a lot of hydromorphone which adds to her fog. How long can does a person usually last with this disease? She sleeps almost 24 x 7, waking only to eat and go to the bathroom. Hospice has been wonderful about bathing her and supplying most medications, her basic needs are fully met. I hate to sound callous but I have to make plans on whether or not to shut down my apartment in Thailand if she's going to continue past March 2019. Hospice and Google give no clear answer, I'd like to connect with someone who has gone through or is going through this disease.
