Re: new to this

I am just home from the hospital. He had the stent insertion, all went well and he will hopefully be coming home again tomorrow. He tried to eat this evening but couldn't really manage much - early days methinks. Still no specialist nurse! I am looking forward to our appointment with the oncologist ...

Re: Newbie, advice and support please?

Oh Sammy-Lou, this is sooo hard isn't it? You must feel helpless, trying to keep it all together at home, while feeling so far away. And while your m-in-law is in hospital it will feel difficult to know what is happening and why. Keep asking questions and giving lots of support, and take support for...

Re: No bed available at hospital for gastric bypass!!!

Oh, I am so pleased to hear she's had the op. I hope you're feeling better too and will be able to see her this weekend. Is it possible for you to take any time off Yorkypaul? Do you know yet when she will see oncology re chemotherapy? We now have an appointment for Tuesday so I will let you know wh...

Re: new to this

Yes, a bed was found and he is safely installed in it with IV fluids and NG tube. The gastroscopy/stent is scheduled for this afternoon. The specialist nurse did say she would meet us on the ward but never turned up, so one of the junior doctors rang her and she said what she wanted (when we arrived...

Re: No bed available at hospital for gastric bypass!!!

I am so pleased to hear this Yorkypaul. I hope the op goes well and you get to visit soon. We are now chasing a bed at our hospital as my husband has started to vomit back fluids, awaiting a phone call any minute...

Re: new to this

Thank you Deb and Laura. We now have the oncologist appointment for next Tuesday, which will be 4 weeks after diagnosis. We don't have the liver biopsy results yet - we'll get these at the appointment. Meanwhile stent insertion is planned for Friday. I do believe that things have gone reasonably qui...

Re: No bed available at hospital for gastric bypass!!!

Oh Yorkypaul, how awful for her and for you. I empathise. My husband was diagnosed three weeks ago - PC and liver secondary which has been biopsied. He has been progressively less and less able to eat - we are managing now with fluids only, anti-emetics and trying to keep him at home until Thursday ...
