Very serious: Guess your mom is 60+. Smoking hx and kidney failure with sepsis are considered "multi-system" failure. Not waking up can be low BP with sepsis, uremic poisoning from kidneys, early liver failure etc. If her heart gets too weak with all the toxins, she will face very grave risk ofh minimal survival. Talk with the bedside RN and the primary specialist taking care of her. Get help with your pain too

Dysphoria: One positive reaction to narcotics is "Euphoria" just feeling good!! That's why narcs are abused frequently. Stopping oxy abruptly can in some cases cause "dysphoria"...just feeling terrible. Depression can also be involved, so be sure to watch for any signs of hurting oneself, and seek medical/emotional professional help if that happens. Good Luck

Talk to your MD: Leg swelling was presumably part of the reason your doctor ordered the Holter. He may have several concerns, so please see him or her ASAP. Leg swelling has many potential causes and your doctor is the source for your answers!! Good Luck!!
