Re: My life partner has Bipolar ii

Got the sad news today, Mr Darcy has pancreatic cancer. I will need to travel to city to be with him (he is being airlifted). Early days - staging yet to occur - posting will be a bit hit and miss.

 

Am hoping pdoc will call me in relation to managing this next phase

Re: My life partner has Bipolar ii

In major city hospital now for procedure/ treatment planning. Mr Darcy beside himself about the time he has been in hospital/ unknown discharge date/ concern about need for major surgery.  Found that regional hospital had been giving him half dose of one of his psych meds in error (1 not 2 tabs).  I rang pdoc to see about prn meds and  checked with staff at desk as to  meds/ dosages he was getting to see if discussed adjustments had been made by psych team I picked up the mistake. 

 

Last thing he/ we need is a psychotic episode.

Ohh wow @Darcy , now we can see why Mr Darcy was having a hard time -- because of his meds Heart

Sending you hugs 

Mr shaz went to the doctor about his worries about the meds like @greenpea 

Last week the doctor gave him a newer version of the meds ---- not working 

So back on the old meds again
