Hi All, Spent the day yesterday at GP and xrays ,it seems now mum had a fractured rib from her last fall ( they didn't do xrays in hospital) . Mum was in a lot of pain in the morning and quite angry with me I had to get assistance from a friend to come with me as I could not have managed on my own. Thank god for friends.. The GP. still has no cause of the falls and does not want to give any other meds eg. antidepressants or vertigo meds as she said it may cause her to be more lightheaded.( If she is lightheaded,? hard to tell as mum cannot explain) Mum seems to throw in the towel a bit more after each fall and gets more angry and confused and fragile . I guess she is pain ,and its hard to see her like this , panodol is all I can give her and she likes me to rub her back with menthol rub. I guess like most carers I feel helpless that I cannot bring back the past and all the good times , just remember them and hope for more.. Take care. paris07.
