Re: Stephen's Story

So, I thought I would give you an update. The stay in hospital for the hip replacement op turned out to be a long one due to his initial lack of mobility (of course that had been caused by the preceding 3 weeks in hospital for the stent replacement) and then blood readings they weren't happy with. H...

Re: Grumpy's Story

My sincere condolences to you and your family. As much as anyone can be said to have had a "good" death it sounds as if your dear dad did. I'm sure he felt content he had spoken with all his children and I hope it's some comfort for you. You are in my thoughts.

Re: Newly Diagnosed

I'm so sorry, Elaine. Deepest condolences to you and your family. You did everything you could and no-one could have done more. I will be thinking of you on Thursday, and in the days ahead.
Much love. Sandie x

Re: Mum of 42 recently diagnosed inoperable PC

Dear Tony and Family I reeled back in shock when I read your post. I just can't believe that Ruth has gone after you and she fought so hard and did all you could to fight this evil disease. She was and will be a beacon of inspiration to present and future sufferers. My sincere condolences. Sandie x

Re: Stephen's Story

You won't believe this, but he's back in hospital. He was literally minutes away from being wheeled down to the car on Monday when he fell in the bathroom and, we subsequently found, broke his hip. He was operated on yesterday. Unfortunately we didn't know it was broken until a physio came in on Thu...

Re: Stephen's Story

Hurray - the new stent is in. In fact the doc who did it came in specially. His professional pride must have been pricked when he failed last week. They are removing the drain today, monitoring him tomorrow and on Monday he can come home. No.1 son is back for another visit, tying in with visiting hi...

Re: Stephen's Story

Hi Elaine Unfortunately the attempt on Wednesday failed too and he developed sepsis. A very frightening time as he started shivering strongly enough to shake the bed and talked nonsense to me. They put another drain in as a pro tem measure, which is working well. Unfortunately, because of that he wa...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

I can so empathise with this, Elaine. The same thing happened with Stephen and he is currently in hospital. They have made one attempt to unblock/replace his (metal) stent and will have another go tomorrow. Our first thought was the cancer had spread to the liver but a scan showed that the tumour ha...

Re: Stephen's Story

So....here we are on the roller coaster again. Our plans to go away were halted in their tracks by the news that Steve's brother had lung cancer and was being zapped with chemo and radiotherapy on a daily basis. So I didn't book anything whilst waiting to see how brother-in-law was doing and then St...

Re: Stephen's Story

PW you have not upset me in the slightest. You make a good point. However, he has just been 'scanned'. He also had a blood test yesterday and I have asked Dr M's secretary if she could find out if the 19-9 marker was taken yesterday too. As far as a holiday is concerned - fear not, Stephen spent 50 ...
