Very tired, pain medication assumed was associated with confusion and he had three plus pitting edema in his feet no complaints pain on flexion or extension denies pain in calfs warmth in calves blood pressure continues to fluctuate last night 85 of 52
I'm trying to understand better.
He was in the hospital for septic shock and he's been home for 15 days?
Are those his current symptoms ?
Was his condition better until now and he seems to be deteriorating ?
If so, I would call his doctor ASAP and get ready to go to ER.
Don't panic. He may just need more IV antibiotics.
If he's got home health nurses, call them because they know him.
If you don't get responses to Doc or nurses, take him to ER if you feel he is declining.
