She was treated for celioutis, but it has changed her health, she has low iron and barely can get around, she refuses having the doctors do much for her. i feel it is heart related but her blood pressure is good. and doctor says her lungs were clear. She saw a different doctor who gave her the blood work up and said her iron was low and her Thyroid result was high. she was hospitalized but after 7 days sent her home with all these problems getting worse. Her foot now has a large purple ring which a few days ago her had was swollen. Have conflicting between doctors and the right treatment. She works against what they try to suggest. This is a two fold problem.

When she spikes a fever, get her to the ER. If she is coughing, her lungs are NOT clear. Elevate her feet to reduce the swelling. She probably needs a hospital bed or extra pillows at night. What you describe sounds like the later stages of Congestive Heart Failure.

I would suggest that your mom see a geriatric doctor, which is someone specializes in the care of the elderly. They are pretty masterful at getting a good overall picture of what is going on.
