Re: My mum - Stage 4 PC with liver mets

For example we received a magazine in the post which had plastic wrapping and she could smell a plastic smell from the other end of the room (no one else could smell it) and we had to throw it away.

Thank you for your replies regarding neuropathy and Creon. The next side effect is sensitive teeth - has anyone got any tips on how to deal with this? My mum will ask her doctor next week.
