My mom broke her hip about 3 years ago. She has MS and with her condition at age 67, she decided not to get hip surgery. The surgeon was nervous about my mom being under for the operation, and my mom just flat out wanted to refuse surgery anyways. So, that is all said and done and now she is 70 years old, she needs to live in a nursing home due to being unable to transfer (and needing to go to the bathroom multiple times a night). The past year her broken hip has been hurting her more than ever. She has a 62 fentanyl patch on, takes Norco 10 every four hours, and also takes neurotin 100 every evening. She had two seizures of unknown causes about three months ago so we are being careful with drugs, but trying to help her pain also. Has anyone had family in a similar position where they had extreme pain from a broken bone that could not be set? The only thing really suggestion by her Dr. is to increase her fentanyl patch, which my mom prefers not to do. Any ideas or suggestions?
