Re: Help please re mums treatment

I haven't been able to come back to these forums recently, as they remind me of the times when mum was alive and I was trying to find answers to helping her feel more comfortable. I had the best help from Jeni. This may not be the place to say this, but my mums funeral was the most memorable occasio...

Re: Help please re mums treatment

Hi John Mums got a nurse from the hospice who's been out to see her a couple of times. She had a visit from an associated specialist from the hospice today. I'm glad she saw mum. She gave advice on her diet. I get the feeling that as she's not "too" bad, that's the way it is. All the best to you and...

Re: Help please re mums treatment

Hi John Thanks for your reply and I obviously hope things go well for your mum. As I'm sure you feel it's the speed of all of this which really shocks. Id never really heard of PC before so it's been a quick learning curve. But hearing from others like you is a real help. Thanks again. Take care Rich

Re: Help please re mums treatment

Hi John First of all let me wish your mother well. Many many thanks for your help and earlier this afternoon I went with my mum to see her excellent GP after phoning him earlier in the day asking to see him. I was ready to suggest Macmillan nurses and he beat me to it and suggested getting a hospice...

Re: Please help my mum about time for chemo.

Dear Franhan and moderator. Thank you for your help. I've been trying to reply to you, Franhan, but my IPhone has been a real pain. I saw my mum earlier tonight and again asked if there's been any post, ie any appointment. I'm sure that mum is more relieved that there hasn't been any. Her best frien...
