My mother had an ischemic stroke 4 days ago that covered 2/3 of the right side of her brain. The same night she over took a prescription of klonopins that her doctor gave her. She has been in a coma since the stroke, and has not responded to any type of commands. The physician at the hospital has informed me that there is not much hope of her ever recovering from this, and as her daughter, I have been appointed as her POA. He called me this evening to discuss her plan of care. He mentioned surgically putting a feeding tube through her belly as well as performing a tracheotomy. Is it at all beneficial to get a second opinion? My mother would never want to live in a vegetative state, or with any type of physical/mental ailments. She has expressed this to me many times in the past. Any suggestions?
