Good Morning everyone!
My FIL has been home with us the second time for a little over 6 weeks. And every other week he gets Diarhea...We can NOT seem to fight it. We give him immodium just as the doctor says...it goes away for a week than comes back with a vengence! There has been no medication changes. But the last doctors appt the doctor tells us to put some pounds on him but HOW if he poops it all out. He is to the point of having to Thicken his liquids, and soften his food but NOT too soft. He can actually eat a bologna sandwich if we sit with him. He cant use the bathroom any longer because he is now unable to walk. So he wears Briefs (depends)
He has NOT gotten any bed sores thank goodness and his bum is clear. But the Diarhea is HORRIBLE and his stomach OMG its so loud almost like a train coming through.
Has anyone had this issue with Alzeimers? I bleach down his bedding and bed after every bout of diarhea so he doesnt havent any nasty bacteria flying around
