My father is 57 and has spastic cp, degenerative osteoarthritis, asthma and is profoundly deaf. I cannot seem to get his Drs to communicate with each other. His rehabilitation team only administer Botox every 3 months when both me and his gp have requested for them to reassess him. He has completely lost his mobility and is in constant spasms and agonizing pain despite meds. Had his gp out today who changed his dose of meds as he was sleeping for very long periods and becoming unresponsive at times. His chronic pain specialist administers nerve blocks but had said there is nothing else he can offer him other than stronger meds which will turn him into a zombie basically.the surgeons refuse to replace any joints as it is too dangerous and he probably wouldn't get much more movement in them anyway due to spams, muscles and tendons. I am completely stuck and am not liking our options:( I am wondering wether we would get more support from the palliative care team?? Not that I want to accept future but its not looking bright:( x
