my mother in law has been told we are now in the final stages of her copd. She only has a 1/4 of her lungs functioning and has dropped wait dramatically. Her bmi is very low and is not allowed to put weight on as it will add strain to her lungs. She is wheelchair bound now and palliative care will be stepping in but we don’t know how much time we have. We know we can’t get a definite answer but she is so down and quiet at the moment but we want her to enjoy the time she has left. Can anyone guide us on a rough time scale?
She has also been told today she has a chest infection, how dangerous can they be at this stage?
Thanks in advance x
