I've been stressing over this subject for awhile and seems to don't know what to do. My dad is 81 with chronic heart failure and chronic kidney disease and also diabetic. Upon discharging from hospital his EF is 10-15%. He got sent home on hospice. He doesn't look deathly ill besides occasional tiredness and little twitching and minor muscles pain, he seems normal. I want to take him to see other doctor or cardiologist for second opinion or evaluation but in order to do that I have to stop hospice (I know I can get back in later). But with daddy's conditions and age, are they gonna be doing anything besides medications? Will they do any invasive surgery in his heart? Will it damage his kidney causing more complication? Will he suffer more than benefit? If it's not really helping him then I don't want to drag him around for nothing.
