Hi Lainey, so sorry to hear that your Father-in-law has reached this stage. It must be so difficult for you all. I'm not based in the UK, so may not be of much help to you in terms of advice on support. Have you been put in contact with a Macmillan nurse, or any other support service? If not, get back in touch with your hospital to see what you can access. I'm sure that others will be more familiar with the system, but I just wanted to respond to your post. Take care xx
Hello Lainey. So sorry you find yourself in this awful situation. My husband has oesophagus cancer and no chemo no radiotherapy. We are now under the palliative care team based at our local hospice and also our GP who will come out as needed. The palliative care team monitor pain relief and offer many other services which we have not gone into as our main concern was pain relief and blood counts and nutrition. Quality of life. Contact your Macmillan nurse who should be able to advise. Your father in laws GP and their team. The hospital G. I. specialist nurse. We were put in touch with the palliative care team through the hospital consultant. To me it would seem you need daily practical help also. Trying to juggle family life husband children and your father in law please ring the hospital consultant team or your Macmillan nurse. Wishing you all the help possible. Thinking about you all. You can PM me anytime love Elizabeth x x
