Re: My Mum

Hello LST, That's great that there has been some progress in terms of the palliative care services. Hopefully, as you say, the morphine will be helpful. I hope the oncology appointment goes well on Friday LST. I wonder, LST, whether you might be able to see your gp and explain the pressure and exhau...

Re: This cruel disease

Hello Keith and also, Theresa, Great to hear the updates, as well as the challenges. Keith, it must be hard when both you and your wife work at the same hospital where Kerry is being treated - it must seem hard to get a "respite", so to speak, not that you want this more than likely, but you will ap...

Re: Extreme Exhaustion

Hi Vickif, I am sorry to hear that you are feeling like progress is minimal. Has your husband had his liver biopsy yet? Or, has he had a date for this? I hope that this does take place as there seems to have been a wait for him to start his chemo. Has he seen an oncologist yet? Please do give us a c...

Hi Fernack, So sorry to read all of this - the weight loss is of course a concern. Its understandable that the oncologist would be thinking about therapeutic benefit versus quality of life - its a difficult decision to make, but having such severe side effects is also very debilitating. Perhaps as E...
