Age 75 Years Female/ 59 Kgs

My Mother has been Hypertensive and Diabetic for 25 years.

She under went a sucessful knee replacement surgery in 2006 however the post operative care for her diabetes was mismanaged and following frequent episodes of Hypoglycemia, suffered frontal lobe damage ( MRI was done) - her symptoms were - lack of communication, blank staring eyes, difficulty in walking with feet pointing inwards while walking and incontinence - She was treated by a neurologist with medicines Nicerbium 30mg,Donecept5mg and Arantrel 100mg, she improved considerably after a year she was sociable, though her movement was slow, her feet tended to point inwards and she was aware of her incontinance.

In 2006 she was diagnosed with calcified Aortic valve stenosis - Symptoms were breathlessness and light headedness. She was having Homeopathy medicines ( Unable to give the name of the medicine ) for the same, while the breathlessness imroved for a while, it returned with severity end 2008 and had to undergo an emergency Aortic valve replacement on 16/1/2009.
Her Post OP investigations were as follows

Blood urea - 262 mg/dl

Back at home she was getting very breathless and on the 7th day review showed Anemia with heamoglobon count of 8.5%

She was addmitted and 2 units of packed cells were given and the diagnosis was

However her breathlessness continued to get bad and Nebulising with Budecort and Duolin showed no improvement, any exertion worsened the breathing and she was gasping for air.
