OK, Im just back from the hospital.
Bad news, Im afraid. OH has had more seizures. They were not as bad as the ones that ended him up in A&E, but he has been put back on the lorazepam. He is very confused, but insisting that he was being discharged today and I was taking him home. I suggested that he must be quite tired after the seizures and perhaps he could have a sleep first, then made my escape. It looks like the UTI has still not gone. That is 3 weeks that he has had it and 3 different types of antibiotics, the last one supposedly targeting that particular bug. Its rather worrying.
What sort of things are you thinking of @Palerider ?
He had a scan 3 weeks ago when he first went into hospital because they thought he might have had a stroke. There was no sign of a stroke (and I would have thought that anything like a tumour would have been noted too) and then they found the UTI
They arnt non-epileptic seizures, @Palerider - they are real ones. He has epilepsy anyway so it makes him more susceptible to triggers like high temperatures and infections. He genuinely had, and probably still has, a UTI
Never feel guilty @Splashing About
Thank you for your your support and hugs are very welcome xx
Im sorry @Palerider - I didnt mean to brush you off. I do appreciate you offering advice. I was probably more brusque than I intended as Im a bit upset. Im also a bit bemused as non-epileptic seizures are usually considered to be a symptom of mental health problems.
OH definitely has an abnormal EEG - spike waves in the temporal lobe - following a car accident many years ago.
