My dad was told he was going to pass in 48 hours. they have him on dilaudid for pain and haldol for nausea and ativan and prenosone (steroid) plus 3 more i dont know.
I understand he needs dilaudid, but i'm more afraid of the haldol. I looked on line and it gives you irregular heartbeat (which he now has) and hiccups and blurred vision and is used for psycotics. It was given to him for nausea and to make him sleep.
Yesterday he was trying to push it away. He asked for a new doctor 4-5 times this week and asked for food after not eating for 14 days. he took 2 bites of soup and then a sip of buttermilk. He asked my mom why am i not getting better i am so sick. He took her hand and kissed her and told her he loved her. We all fell apart.
I've been reading on line that dilaudid and haldol have caused 2400 deaths. I'm beginning to think Hospice just wants to speed it all up. they just increased his dosage again. im freaking out. I want to find a doctor that will come to the house but i dont know if there are any.
I'm really scared of this haldol. does anyone know anything about it? They said they only reason he is alive is because he is such a fighter. With every chemo and drugs he has been on he should not be here.
Trying to figure it all out. If you know please let me know.
