nerve damage in bladder, dr wants to do surgeryPlease help me for my grandmother. Her doctor just tested her bladder today and confirmed that it is retaining urine. They believe that this has been caused by a spinal infection .
I just found the remedy Aconitum Napellus in the Remedy Finder, and would like an opinion about it's use in her case.
She is a "tough old bird", healthy as a horse before, but been through a lot this year. She had a non-cancerous 9cm tumor removed along with most of her stomach in April. She's had in the past trouble with what's left of her stomach closing up so food wouldn't go in, but for the last few weeks that seems to have resolved. In the mean time, while hospitalized to resolved the malnutrition resulting from the above, she developed an infection in her blood and subsequently in her spinal cord. This also caused excrutiating pain in her back.
She wants to, and generally does sleep all the time, except when pushed to get up to eat and do physical therapy. I know she is worried that she is falling apart, may be fearing death.
Thanks for your help,
