Probably the wrong place to post, but just wanted opinions.
My Mum was on dialysis supposedly getting better and then she died! Coroner said the dialysis was a contributing factor. Would anyone else want to know why? x

Yes, I would!
So sorry to hear about you losing your mum.
I think sometimes knowing what's happened can help with the grieving process as well.

How awful, I'm so sorry. Yes, you should ask. You'll always wonder otherwise. Can the PALS service help?

Thanks for your opinions. Mum was cremated on Tuesday so its still early days, but I'm lost, empty and feel she should still be here x
What is PALS? x

I'm very sorry for your loss. Yes, I'd want do know.

Presumably she would have died without the dialysis though? I think the reason she died is because she was very ill & her kidneys weren't functioning as they should. It is very hard to accept the death of someone so close to you but in time you will remember past the illness & all the good times spent with her. My brother died in an accident & we never knew exactly what he did & why but over time I dwell less on that & more on our time together.

PALS is the patient advice and liaison service. I don't have any experience of them though. It might be worth asking for this thread to be moved to Bereavement as others may have gone through a similar process. Again, so sorry for your loss. Be kind to yourself flowers
