Hi Laura, to the forum! I am sorry your mom is suffering so, and I have not had her problem but I know of someone who does and the pain is really bad. There are many here with a stoma and possible the same problem as your mom. Glad you found this forum because everyone is very supportive and helpful. Very wonderful of you to come on here for her!

Hi Laura - Sorry to hear about the problems your mom is having.

Has she been now or in the past on prednisone for a long time? Long term pred use can cause osteoporosis.

What other meds is she on? I hope she and you can get to the bottom of all these issues and she starts to feel better soon!

I hope your mom's fracture heals. Is she taking anything for the osteoporosis?

Are they thinking the "thick blood" is related to a disease process? Sometimes as people get older their blood needs to be thinned, it is not necessarily indicative of disease. They do have to take blood thinners, sometimes for and extended amount of time.

I hope your mom sees the specialist and they get her on a treatment plan that gets her feeling better soon! My thoughts are with you both.
