Got his results today and all normal. I am confused. Why is he so swollen in his face and sleeping all day and not eating..Yes I will make the appointment so i can make sure I am with him. He has all the symptoms for myopathy. So not sure what they will do?
Could it be fluid retention? My dad has kidney issues and heart failure. His weight differs daily,Sometimes he looks like a hamster with swollen cheeks.Got his results today and all normal. I am confused. Why is he so swollen in his face and sleeping all day and not eating..

His heart is fine apparently . He has refused blood tests since last October . Doctor is ringing him tomorrow but he just tells lies. He says he's ok and I can't force him.

Exactly. My dad didn't ask for help either despite his underlying medical conditions. I ended up phoning his sister in tears who came over and all but threw him into the car. It is so frustrating when they are so stubborn.I guess it could be quite a few causes but he won't know unless he asks for help
He is putting off ringing the doctor today I think he knows what he will be told. I sent the doctor an email telling him how he is. My life is like a car crashThe blood test will have shown the damage that the alcohol is doing to his liver. Probably best if you accompany him to the doctor's and be totally honest about your husband's lifestyle.
I don’t have anything useful to say on hubby.Morning all. Not posted for a while. We have moved now into a bungalow and busy making it safe for my hubby. Currently having a walk in shower fitted . He has settled really well sleeping downstairs and I feel calmer when I leave him for short spells. His kidneys and liver are now failing so having regular blood tests. Does anybody know what the docter will do about this ,if he can and my hubby wi l accept help?
Looking forward to being able to start swimming again when the pool opens.
Very kind words. We tend to forget to praise ourselves when life seems hopeless. We have had to change doctors unfortunately which means I need to rebuild my rapour . The last doctor was amazing always including me as his carer. I am taking him on Monday for more bloods so hoping out new doctor now has all his records so will let me be involved so I can encourage him to accept help. My hubby is so clever so I struggle to accept he can't see what he is doing to himself .I don’t have anything useful to say on hubby.
But wanted to offer congratulations on the move and bathroom adaptations.
Often it is so depressing living with the problems you contend with , that people are not able to do much at all.
well done you!
Could you discuss with the GP if there are any medication options to be given on a one off basis before ‘interventions’.So today more drama. Refused to go for blood tests. How on earth can you help someone when they won't help themselves. So angry with him.
