Hi Jules

Just want to send you my support at this awful time.
They told me that mum had days rather than weeks and she lived for 2 weeks more. It is awful not knowing but the staff really can only guess, I hope your Dad is as comfortable as possible though.
Love and thoughts
Angie

Angie's Mum

Hi Sharon, Thanks for your concern, Mum is not too bad at present. She is still in some considerable pain though, she is on Morphine patches which are not helping much, which Jo my anaesthetist friend says is a good indication that the pain is not due to recurrence but to inflammation following the ...

Angie's Mum

Hi Sharon Thank you for your reply and for your concern. Mum is not bad, she came round last night for tea and to have her hair cut. She has been on to the Doctor and he has told her to put 2 patches on to double the dose of Morphine to see if that will control the pain. She does look tired though, ...

You're welcome, it's good to have someone to talk to who isn't involved in any way as all the people around you are too emotionally involved.
Keep in touch and let us know the test results.
