Re: Concerned husband

Hello Saxon and I'm sorry that your wife is so poorly. I can't give advise on Folfirinox but others on the forum will be able to talk to you about that. However, my husband was referred to Macmillan as soon as he was diagnosed and the nurse was very good at managing his pain. Oromorph and, at a late...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Your posts are never boring, Mo. I don't have a faith and neither did Allan. I sometimes wish I did believe but I find it extremely difficult to fathom and have come to the conclusion that I must be the heathen that my Grandma used to accuse me of being when I didn't want to go to church as a child....

Hello Mo...I love the train analogy. It perfectly describes the awful period that you and Peter are going through. You're in my thoughts and I wish you strength for the next stage of Peter's journey.

Love Vee xxxx

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hi Mo...you're allowed to wallow and be a layabout. You've got a mentally draining job to do. Allan used to say to me "stop flying about and come and sit down". I felt that I had to always be doing something to prove that I was looking after him and that everything was as it was before he became ill...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hello Mo. I haven't been on the forum for a while as I find it upsetting but it's time I stopped being a wuss. I've read through your postings and I want you to know that I'm thinking of you and Peter and to say that you're handling the situation with your usual good humour and strength. Allan was c...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hi Mo....I'm happy to know that Peter is still managing the England team in among all his other sporting roles and that you are keeping the home fires burning. I loved reading the bit about him taking over the mowing...Allan used to do that with me sometimes...just come out and say nothing but take ...

Re: Our story...

Hello I'm sorry to read that your stepdad and your Mum and yourself are at this stage of this dreadful disease. I don't know what else to say to you but just be with him and make sure he knows that he's not alone. The hard reality of the situation with my late husband didn't dawn on me until his las...

Re: Carrying On

Marmalade.....thankyou for this post. It's reassuring to know that the feelings I'm feeling are "normal"...the memory, the silly eating and the lack of confidence. Your words are a comfort. I hope your move is stress-free and I look forward to many more of your marvellous writings when you've settle...

Re: New diagnosis

Hello cjg....I would dearly love to send you a miracle or a magic wand. I don't have advice on chemo either as Allan had just the one round of it. I'm not much use to you in those respects but I'm willing you both on and sending you love and strength at this time....Vee xxx

Re: Hello

Hello again ....Allan's funeral is this afternoon and I'm counting the minutes and trying to calm my nerves. I'm dreading the hearse arriving and yet, I want it to be over. The last couple of weeks have been busy and today is the culmination of our preparations. The house is quiet for now and I'm ju...

Re: Hello

Hello all....can I ask if anyone paid for a 2nd opinion before the final diagnosis? When Allan was ill at the beginning of last year he was diagnosed with bladder cancer but he still had upper abdominal pain which was investigated but nothing was found, so he was treated for vasculitis of the arteri...
