My husband has decided to stop his water pills.
He has MSA-C. This is a form of PD. There is no cure for this and no meds to slow it down. The disease is progressing to a point that we now have more equipment for him in our home. A PT person is coming twice a week. I now have to sleep in a different room due to his request. I spoke to our family doctor and was told that it is going to take many weeks before his major organs start to become effected. If this were me I would think I would want my Husband of over 30 years to be beside me.
If he takes the water pills he spends all day going to the bath room. Not good. Truth is that there is only little change in the retention of fluids. He says he is tried of taking pills. I don't blame him for feeling this way. But this is hard form me. He has told me he wants to die. I feel like there is a fork in the river and a part of me is drifting away and I am lost on this new wide a fast river.
