Any idea what the next step would be?
I am an RN for 23 years and this should not be rocket science for me. My mom had a lung resection for cancer one month ago and ended up on a vent 48 hours later. Now they are saying Criticall Illiness Neuropathy. Howerver she responds to the nurses and family somewhat but not the doctors. She is mad at them and when she gets irritated, they shove more Narcotics at her. Uggh. She is at a Specialty Hospital in this area (Chicao) associated with three major university hospitals. I am a tad bit overwhelmed especially my brain.
I had not even considered the damage that is going on in his left leg with the pyoderma. He does not take additional Tylenol but occasionally takes ibuprofen. He needs someone good to handle pain management other than the idiots who feel he exxagerting everything.
