  • Forum Post: Re: Early symptoms of mesothelioma

    I have been back to my GP as I still have pains in my ribs. Some days there is very little and on others it is more marked. It is more of a dull ache than a pain if that makes sense; certainly not sufficient to warrant use of analgesics. As several folk have pointed out on this forum most GP's will...
  • Forum Post: Mesothelioma but no asbestos fibres

    My husband died recently of Peritoneal Mesothelioma and there is a huge amount of evidence he was exposed to asbestos on a daily basis in his work for more than a decade yet despite that no asbestos fibres were found in the tissue samples taken at post mortem. Has anyone had experience of this? I am...

  • Forum Post: ABC's of CANCER. T,U, & V.

    T for thief and time. Time steals so much from you. We have always tried to use it to our best advantage. U is the unknown. Roger and I don’t know what is ahead but we keep on going. Just like that bunny that keeps going and going and going. We are going. I know I am planning our next cruise...
  • Forum Post: ABC's of CANCER. N & O

    N for NHS. Again for the non-UK people. The National Health Service. With the exception of that one “doctor”, see above under “M”. Just great to us. O is for overwhelming. How anyone can do this alone, I’ll never know. Especially in the beginning. There is so much...

    F Friends and family. Thank you. We thank you. We just thank you. G is for grooming. Something I’ve forgotten about. One day I looked into the mirror and realized I hadn’t shaved in over 3 weeks. I knew when the flowers in the garden would wilt as I passed by. Or when the neighbour’s...
  • Forum Post: ABC's of CANCER C, D & E

    C is for cry. Why or why is crying not a way to lose weight? Life is not fair. For if it was, when I sat down, I’d be sitting on the front of my legs. C is also for chemo. It is our magic bullet that we are told, and hope, will give us time. D for drugs. Our table looks like a drug store...
