<t>Hi all,<br/> <br/> It's almost 5 months since my last post. After 3 months, formal interpretation of Mother's scan revealed "incidental" find of right kidney failure. Suggest insert kidney drain. Final Decision: no intervention.<br/> <br/> However, she's had only one episode of fecal incontinence...
<t>Mum finally had the scan & been referred to a Urologist as her right kidney is failing....seems they might insert a drain. <br/> <br/> I absolutely dread this. She will not be able to manage with a bag, will forget, damage herself etc., I honestly don't know how any environment would be OK fo...
<t>Scotsman: I know I've become very cynical over last year or so, but after many years my mother was finally "coerced" to see GP (only because she was in a car accident) then on to the Memory Clinic & Psychiatrist. <br/> <br/> Whooppee......she had a diagnosis.<br/> <br/> That is ALL. A diagnos...
<t>My mother has vascular dementia.<br/> <br/> Two years ago she had a Court summons for non-payment of council tax. Her Psychiatrist wrote to the Court & Council - he said that (because of vascular dementia) she was severely mentally impaired. She got a one-year back-paid rebate & now has f...

I can understand your Mum not wanting to use pads as they do get very uncomfortable (remember using ST's w...
No-one cares & there's nothing offered to my 85-yr old mother either. It's not age that's relevant to the authorities, it's that they have a check list & all the boxes have to be neatly ticked - if not, the person is discarded.....at least that's my experience
<t>I think it's about a month since my last post.<br/> <br/> Scan - radiologist said it was not an appropriate test for mother's symptoms, whatever that means. Now referred to (very highly specialised) gastro-enterologist. <br/> <br/> GP says she's got some fluid on her lungs & heart murmer - as...
I asked him many questions
Like High Court Judges, he's necessarily got an attention span of 15-30 seconds.

Tip: only ask one question at a time.
With the amount of ill and disabled people who are probably going to fail these so called medicals and lose Incapacity Benefit and DLA etc and have to go and sign on for JSA A friend of mine gets Income Support + family credit, child benefit etc. for herself, her children AND her boyfriend . All of...
