My mother passed away after heart valve surgery. She lasted 50 days post surgery. Why would she not have been given any pain medication especially in light of the bedsores and injury to her groin area following an arterial line error. Yet they did give her pain meds in palliative care, I saw them changing the bedsore wounds and when they moved her you, you could see the pain on her face although she was unable to verbalize this pain. Thuis is very baffling to me.
