I am new to the forum and looking for advice.
My mother in law was recently admitted to ICU after she was found unconscious, her lungs were unable to function without support after pneumonia.
They put her into a drug induced coma with the view that she would be more comfortable while the antibiotics were being administered.
She was gradually weened off the sedation after 10 days, while under she was on propofol.
Immediately after 'waking' she was very confused, telling stories of nightmares and unable to tell what was real or not (off course she thought everything was real)
She has now been at home with us for 1 week and is still confused, constantly repeating conversations and changing her mind all the time.
She was discharged with no guidance on these type of symptoms and we are really concerned that she has suffered permanent brain damage.
Sorry for the long post, any help or advise would be very much appreciated.
