My Mum has spinal cord cancer and has been in hospital confined to a bed for the last 10weeks as her legs gave way, and She can no longer walk. She has been moved between 3 hospitals and each time she has been moved each journey had been distressing and made her symptoms worse. I have had to ask for support from McMillan, and they now see her weekly. No-one has given us a prognosis, although seeing her get weaker and become more disoriented we are coming to our own conclusion. Myself and my dad spend every day by her bed , if we don't go she becomes very distressed, the nurses are too busy to provide emotional support for her. I want to bring her home, but the hospital are taking a long time to arrange it. I feel like we are all in a nightmare we can't wake up from.
