I am so very proud of him an...

Re: My world just fell apart

Francis, So sorry to hear about the difficulties you have been facing. I too HATE THIS BLOODY DISEASE, no doubt along with everyone else on these forums, but I know I have found support here over the last few weeks since my husband was disgnosed. You have been given good advice, you do need to be as...

Re: Really confused

Was really excited on Wednesday to hear I was getting my husband home on Thursday, all went well initially although he was very tired all day Friday. Also his wound from the bypass surgery had partially opened up and the district nurses were coming in to dress it daily, unfortunately by Saturday asc...

Re: Really confused

Hi again, Thank you all for your kind words and support, I'm sorry I haven't replied to you sooner, at the moment I am really struggling, I'm finding it very hard to come to terms with everything that's happened. My husband is still in hospital and is quite low, he's coped so well but is finding thi...

Re: Really confused

Hi again, I haven't been on this forum for a wee while, my husband was eventually admitted to hospital and we have been on an emotional rollercoaster ever since. He has now had a successful stent op to address the jaundice, a further unsuccessful attempt at a stent op to address a blockage in the bo...

Re: Really confused

Thanks Rachel, I'm hoping my husband will have to chance of a stent, I feel if he could get rid of the jaundice he would be so much more comfortable. I am going to push the hospital to prioritise him, he might not be their 'priority' but he is mine! I'm glad to hear your dad is making progress and w...

Re: Really confused

Thank you C, I have found it reassuring to hear from people like Louie and yourself, I hate seeing my husband in such discomfort and until you've witnessed the effects of jaundice it's hard to imagine how awful it can be. I was worried I was over reacting to the lack of communication/action from the...

Re: Really confused

Thank you Louie, I am going to act to your advice, I'm not prepared to be pushed from pillar to post, my husband deserves better than that and he needs help with the jaundice so if I need to shout then I will! This is all so new to us but it seems we will have to learn quickly. I'm so glad to have f...
