My mother has just had a diagnosis of COPD/Emphysema, but denies there is anything wrong because she believes she has no symptoms (besides the audible 'smokers' cough!).
She had a CT scan yesterday, and the results were not due for 10 days. However, her GP arrived today to break the news. The hospital want to admit her for biopsy and treatment - she refuses to go.
Is there anything that can be done to persuade her? Rather than 'allowing' my father to nurse her to her death at home? She has not been given a 'life-span' if not treated.
Any help/advice gratefully received.
Huge thanks in advance, for reading.
