Topic: Husband's symptoms
My husband is getting palliative and/or hospice care since March. As some of you may recall, he's had some issues. He is somewhat jaundiced because his stent does not seem to be working as well as it once did. It still clearly is draining into the external bag. But, his doctor thinks the tumor has likely grown and another duct is blocked. Al has chosen not to have another stent procedure.
I recently have noticed that the palms of his hands and bottom of his feet are kind of ashen or gray in color. It is quite noticeable since the rest of the skin has the yellow hue. Has anybody else ever seen this? Whenever I bring anything up to the hospice nurse, they just act like he's doing great. I agree with the positive attitude around him. I just don't have any idea why somethings happen. Also, I continue to work and I am trying to get a feel for an answer from them if it is time to take time off. Every time I feel I need to be home, he rebounds.
Anyhow, thanks for any answers or advise.
