    To those with ALS, nursing question.

    I will make sure to keep these little tips in my mind. I always like to talk, I currently work in a hospital and I usually stay and talk just as long as I possibly can.

    one year of muscle wasting and still no answer.

    When a person is scared, is it really logical to ask them "Do you want to have ALS?". No matter what tests he has had done he is seeing symptoms that are scaring him. I agree after all the tests done coming back clean clearly dont point to ALS, however, I dont think oncologist close a session by...

    one year of muscle wasting and still no answer.

    no, and no one went directly to him either. There was nothing to pussyfoot around there. What is realistic about asking someone if they want ALS? Like they're really hoping they have it?

    one year of muscle wasting and still no answer.

    I don't believe the person that made this topic gave any indications that they weren't listening, and that was the first reply regardless.

    one year of muscle wasting and still no answer.

    I hate to sound snarky, because I am not. And I think you do have a much more in depth knowledge of ALS than I do, by a long shot. I have been searching old threads on here and reading the current ones trying to learn all I can, and almost all of your replies have a spirit of meanness to them...

    To those with ALS, nursing question.

    Are there things that nurses do for you that you like and dislike? If so would you mind sharing? I am an LVN (may be called LPN) where you are and I am working on my RN. I plan on doing Hospice care, and I would like to better be able to care for those with ALS, I realize we're all different and...

    Admitted to ER/ICU

    It sounds like he had a pulmonary embolus. How fortunate you were at the hospital at the time. I hope he has a speedy recovery and gets better in general.
