Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you Veema, that really helped to read that last night x Mum generally just doesn’t feel well, we’re thinking it’s the chest infection that’s making it all harder work so we’re just concentrating on that for today, keeping her comfortable and warm. She slept a little better with the increased d...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you again. We’ve had an extremely rough day today after a couple of ‘not too bad’ days where we were even talking about a short trip out tomorrow which she hasn’t managed since being home from hospital on the 4th Jan. Last night brought more pain and this morning she was in a real state, basic...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you for your replies and kind thoughts. The appointment with the oncologist went as well as could be expected I guess. She’s to start chemo soon, next week we’ll have an appointment all about it and then she starts chemo that is tablets and IV a few times, 3 weeks on 1 week off I think. Howeve...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you. They’ve prescribed some Creon tablets to have every time she eats but that side of things seems to have settled down before she’s started them so we’re wondering if it’s been from all the meds and antibiotics last week. We’ve got the community palliative nurse and the district nurse comin...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you Marmalade, We’ve put some of the items in place already based on the recommendations, mainly as we were worried about her not making it to the loo for a pee in time but this has surprised us all a bit and we’re just wondering why more than anything, especially as she has the urge to go #1 ...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thanks Marmalade, That makes sense, I think I can get all that arranged. Mum is home now. My sister has stayed with her for two nights but absolutely must go home tonight as she hasn’t slept in her own bed for two weeks. I’m really worried as my dad is really deaf (I have now booked him a hearing te...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you that does actually help because if there’s any positive reason then I’ll try my best to keep her off them but I just didn’t want her to be struggling with that as well if there was no point.

I think also as she prefers to smoke outside it would help if that wasn’t a factor longer term.

Re: Don’t know where to start

Oh one other question I have today (and I think I probably know the answer) but mum has been a smoker all her life and the 7 days she’s been in the hospital have been the longest she’s ever gone without a cigarette. They’ve given her nicotine patches and I’ve got some ready for her for when she come...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you for the great info, I’m making a note of everything so I can gather together what will be needed. As it happens she’s still in hospital as we had a rough day yesterday. She had a chest X-ray as was running a temperature and turns out she’s picked up a chest infection at the hospital. She w...

Re: Don’t know where to start

Thank you for your replies. I have a million more questions but am getting confused as the information we’ve been given in the hospital has changed a few times and we’re all exhausted so I don’t know if I am coming or going at the moment. Mum had a decent day yesterday but seems to have gone backwar...

Don’t know where to start

Hello everyone, I am glad to have found this forum. My mum was officially diagnosed with PC on Boxing Day after a few months of upper abdominal problems and pain at the side of her ribs for about 6 months. We’d been drip fed a little information following an ultrasound and CT scan by her GP and foll...
