kimberliebishop Posted July 8, 2006 Share Posted July 8, 2006 Hello everyone....I am having a hard time knowing what to do. My mom was dx in late May with nsclc and is starting chemo and radation on Monday. My problem is my mom is sooo doped up and has completly checked out. She cant remember what the hospital and Dr office needs when they call or what instructions they give her so I am always calling around and double checking appt. times and test instructions. She gets things all mixed up and turned around...So I need advice on two things..... 1. Could she be over medicating herself...I think she dosent think her meds are working unless she is extremly High. Not able to think or almost speak. 2. Should I have the hospital and Dr office call me insted of my mother...I am so torn on this issue because I feel strongly that she needs to be as active and knowlegable as possible about everything. Things just seem so much harder because of all the confusion. Any advice??????? Thanks Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
