Topic: Confusion NOT due to ammonia?
I tried the "Search" function at the top, but there are so many posts to comb through...
My Mom has been on home hospice since Friday for her CC recurrence. Yesterday afternoon and today she's talking as if very confused, and some nonsense sentences. She's no where near constipated, actually having loose stools about once a day, so it's probably not ammonia.
She is not yet jaundiced although her bilirubin was 1.6 last week, high for the first time in her life. She has no stents or anything else like that. She's taking oxycodone for knee and back pain, which she's taken in the past, and ativan for when she feels antsy. So there's really nothing new as far as medication.
In anyone's experience here, what else can cause confusion? Is it just the progession of the CC?
