My mom is 86. Has cardiovascular myopathy, 4 coronary stents and a pacemaker that is keeping her alive. She recently had hernia surgery and also fell and broke her wrist. She is receiving OT for the fracture and has been having PT for strength and balance.
She has had slight discomfort in the hernia site and has had cardiac symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, cold sweats etc, after PT. They are aware of her medical condition but insist that it will benefit her.
Is all this causing undue stress that can lead to a problem. I think it's over done and am thinking if discontinuing the PT.
Any advice or similar situations out there? Thanks
