    • The reason my husband and Daughter didn't want me left alone was they saw a young woman who couldn't feed herself puree food.  They used to put note would not eat it but the poor girl could not do it.   It made my husband dubious and he made sure I was never alone after seeing that !!    I think Carers should make sure people who cannot care for themselves get the right treatment.    There for the grace of God etc etc !! 
    •   This made me laugh...when I was in hospital the poor woman in the bed opposite me (who was immobile and couldn't really speak after a stroke) had a baked potato and cheese for lunch and dinner every day for the 10 days I was there!  The nurses were always worrying that they weren't really communicating with her to understand what she really wanted. But finally her daughter put their mind at easy by saying she had baked potatoes every day before she was ill!   And as for Nimodipine - uggg that was awful. I too was in during the summer and it was SOOOO warm that I was asking for ice packs at night. I suffer from v. cold hands and a constantly freezy nose (Raynauds) and the Nimodipine made all my extremities hot....and my nose itches constantly for 3 weeks. Nearly drove me mad!!! I later found out sometimes they give people with Raynauds Nimodipine as a treatment.....ahhh that'll be a no! Happy to stick with the cold nose!
    • We’ve got a referral next month to Sheffield Opthamology for electro diagnostic tests & also see his Neuro surgeon to discuss the occipital damage & optic nerve too. So hopefully get answers. His solicitor trying to get referral to Neuro Opthzmologist for medi legal report so between meeting these 3 other professionals hope to move forward. No funding at our hospital so see where go at others. Fingers crossed. Thank you 
    • I think you need to see neuro ophthalmologist . Us gp cannot handle eye issues and I think it might be a challenge for regular eye md also
