Your perseverance is admirable.You are right about having to return to the doctor again for further review with your wife.Although these symptoms are extremely uncomfortable for your wife,they also take a tremendous amount of your energy too. Not to mention the strain it may be having, or can have , upon the marriage. It looks currently as though responsibilty for keeping your wife's treatment under review is falling to you. I hope you have found a source of knowledgeable support for yourself to help prevent you burning out. You both need assistance to see this through.
If the "intensive daytime support" is seen as required by the professionals, and your wife finds herself unable to go to them, perhaps they could come to visit her at home. Even if for a one off visit to attemp to encourage her to attend their care programme. They ought to be aware of the non compliance issues relating to her specific diagnosis, and cannot surely expect not to have to provide outreach work of some description.Home visiting may be initially required to gain your wife's trust. It is arrogant of them to assume everyone will have no difficulty in coming to their project. Remember the old saying " If Mohammed won't come to the mountain then the mountain must go to Mohammed"
Meanwhile, good luck to you both.
