Hello my mother in law aged 69 had a heart attack in November. It is now August. She has been unwell since it happened and was hospitalised a couple of times for excess fluid build up despite being on the dietetics etc. she is currently in hospital again and she is very ill. Extremely fatigued, breathing shallow and they have taken in the last week 12 kilos of fluid off her. Her kidneys aren't working as well as they should be and her liver is struggling a bit. Her eyes look cloudy, she hardly talks and can't move much. Practically bed ridden except when physio comes in to try and sit her up in a chair and do a couple of little exercises after that she is exhausted and basically drifts in and out of sleep. She is in the Coranary Care Unit. We still don't really know what is happening and if she will recover has anyone got any advice except for a meeting in which we are trying to organise with specialists. Has anyone experienced this and can tell us what is happening here. Much appreciated.
