my husband 69 years old and .was admitted to hospital in nov 2014 with atrial fibrillatin and diognosed with heart failure. When he was discharged he seemed tp improve on the regime of pills they gave him
. His general well being started to deteriorate in mid Feb 2015 and was readmitted to hospital , after many scans, blood tests, ultrasounds etc, it was assessed that his heart ET was 25% in dec'14 and now 15% 27th feb'15
My husbands short term memory is nil.. I went to collect him from hospital, and although I had understood from him that all the tests were fine. before we left I said I really did want to speak to a doctor about his condition (I never seemed to be at the hospital at the right time, and nurses cannot tell me details over the phone!} I was knocked sideways to be told there was nothing to be done for his serious heart failure and palliative care was the way forward,, .
To make matters worsethat there appeared to be a mass in his spleen which was probably the start up again of a previous "non-hodgkins lymphatic cancer" that he had 6 years ago.
I was in total shock, I still do not know what the prognosis will be, and what life expectancy I can hope for him.
He sleeps most of the time, gets breathless at any exertion. and asks me about 4 times every day what is wrong with him.
Is there anyone out there in a similir position or can give me any idea of what the future holds, and it what ways I can improve things for my husband.
He has no appetite and no real interest in anything. I feel we have been abandoned
