Nan is in the acute stroke unit at New Cross Hospital and they have been fantastic. The unit is lovely, the staff are great and nan is getting excellent care. Nan had another scan today which shows she has had 2 strokes, one on each side of the brain. The consultant was very kind and explained how she had no hope of recovery, plus she also has pancreatic cancer. We have agreed for them to withdraw fluids and just keep her comfy. She hasn't woken since she was admitted to A&E. They have said that she could last 2 to 3 weeks. This seems a long time without fluid. Is this likely? I am so sad and scared. What will happen as she gets weaker and passes away

I just posted on your other thread :-(

She will likely stay asleep. She may moan if in pain. As the end draws closer her breathing will become erratic. So sorry you have to go thru this.

This happened to my mum. It was shit. She lasted two weeks.
