Re: Newly Diagnosed

Hi everyone and thank you for all the kind messages of support. I have been in touch with our brilliant nurses all week as Pete was admitted to the local hospital on Monday afternoon by the GP. It has been one helluva rollercoaster week the bumpiest so far. We were told so many conflicting reports t...

Re: Stephen's Story

Brilliant news he will be so looking forward to going home and you will be too. Hospitals tend to take over your life and your days and dont leave time for you. He should start to feel much better in quite a short time.Enjoy having your sons visit before throwing yourself back into the swing of thin...

Re: aphthous ulcer

Hi Kate Every so often Pete has issues with his mouth and throat and he uses an antibacterial medicated mouthwash three times daily and this seems to keep it at bay most of the time. He usually gets it a few days after chemo. Hope your Dad gets some relief soon.

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Hi everyone Pete had his CT scan on Monday and I just felt so sad for him ...first off he was given the jug of water to drink but as he can only seem to swallow small amounts of fluid at any one time before he starts burping and become unable to keep drinking this was a nightmare for him but he mana...

Re: Ascites

Hi Vee I am so glad you felt you could share your feelings with everyone here and far from being depressing I found it so realistic and I think loss and grieving for the person we loved for so long is something that we all can identify with whether they have gone or are still here going through ther...

Good morning Mo as per usual your post uplifted me. I hope the diabetes nurse comes up with some answers soon and that Peters nausea calms down ....it must be horrid for him.

Re: Travelling with stage 4 from spain

Hi Pipster I am sorry to hear your dads diagnosis ....I don't know anything about the effects of travel on PC but if you give our nurses on here either an email or a call they will give you excellent advice. All I can add is that we have found that Petes condition can change in no time and we need s...
