Re: Writing this to help me cope

Thanks for that Jules, and though no-one can bring our husbands back, I find some comfort in reading the posts on this forum, hearing how other people are coping (or not coping) whether carers or patients. Your husband was too young to be taken by this cancer, it must have been heartbreaking for you...

Re: Writing this to help me cope

Applinappers it is only 6 weeks since your Mum died and that is no time at all, plus you have had all the hoopla of Christmas and New Year to get through. As Winnieweg says on this post, grief is a journey and we all travel along it at our own pace, stopping now and again. It is so true and when I g...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

I just wanted to thank Justamo and all the other contributors on this long and valuable post which I have read from the beginning to the end over the Christmas period. It has been so helpful to me to hear everyone's experiences which I can relate to, and give me some pointers as to how lives carry o...

Re: Hiccups

I am sorry to hear you and your partner have had such a rough time, all part of dealing with this horrible cancer. My husband must have been "lucky" in as much as the Metoclopramide did work for him. His hiccups started at home before he was admitted to A & E (with suspected sepsis, no-one had a clu...

Re: Hiccups

My husband also suffered from persistent hiccups day and night which were unpleasant for him and alarming for me. When he was admitted to hospital the doctor prescribed Metoclopramide which is actually an anti nausea drug but also used for other symptoms including hiccups in cancer patients. It work...

Re: Writing this to help me cope

Thank you Winnieweg, I don’t know what to say but hope things are easing slightly for you, I am trying hard to concentrate on the many good memories now and not dwelling on the horrible ones. Am trying not to keep endlessly analysing my husbands last 6 weeks, although first thing in the morning it a...

Re: Writing this to help me cope

Jeni, thank you for your kind words, we have the most wonderful hospice here, I wish I could say their name but I know it’s not allowed. They offer bereavement counselling which I will ask for in the New Year. At the moment home is my refuge with occasional visits to family and very close friends on...

Re: Writing this to help me cope

Change of plan - I am so sorry to hear about your husband and realise you will now be experiencing the horrible post funeral time, feeling shell shocked and wondering why this dreadful cancer struck and turned your world upside down. I went through the whole funeral on auto pilot, collapsing in a he...

Writing this to help me cope

I lost my husband to this very aggressive cancer seven weeks ago so I am that raw emotion stage where tear inducing memories are everywhere and I am reminded of him all day long leading to a very deep sadness. We had been together 45 years, married for 42, and he died just too young at 66 years old,...
