Discussions that mention morphine

Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia board

Sounds like Cellulitis to me (inflammation of the cells) which needs aggressive antibiotics ...... however, due to her other 'issues', an aggressive antibiotic could cause more damage......

she needs PROPER pain control/relief to start with. If that means a morphine patch (Durogesic transdermal patch) which won't whack her out but will help calm her down

She needs antibiotics plus a 'gut regime' to the antibiotics don't damage her other limited organs

You need to make some phone calls to get the ball rolling asap.

Hope this helps.
