Hi, my mother in law has copd and is now at a stage she needs oxygen 24/7, cant walk far and without oxygen her level drops from 96 to 72 in an hour. She has regular infections and goes on antibiotics ( 4 different types in one case to shift it ) and steroids at these times.
I would be grateful if someone ( although it seems morbid ) could give me some guidance as to how it will progress and timelines? She also has a pain in her left side just under her ribs that makes her less able to do things but nothing comes up on an xray. She feels her life is pretty much over but it would really help to be able to understand what is to come.
Thanks so much for reading this.
