Friend's gran has heart condition.
« on: 14/10/2004 17:24:00 »
Fellows, Emese's gran is ill but wants to stay out of hospital and her Dr says this would be fatal. Her heart is unwell and she finds breathing hard.

Would Aspirin help? Any good foods...? Home nursing, is that an option?

I'm sorry for Emese's gran and family. I've heard that aspirin has beneficial effects for heart conditions, however...if the Doctor says she should stay in hospital then that is really where she should be !!....seems to me from what you are saying she really ought to be there...I think it's her that needs convincing, after all Doctors can only do there jobs under the appropriate conditions ie: access to the patient !!!...taking granny out of the hospital environment negates the possibility of monitoring and speedy attention.

Not enough information to work with.  If it's congestive failure, that's one thing.  Heart attack is another.  How about more details?
