My husband has stage 4 bowel cancer that has spread into his stomach and liver. This was diagnosed 14 months ago, he has been on 2 different chemotherapy drugs, both have now stopped working. His Oncologist has said he could try Avastin targetted drug which he would have to self fund. This is a battle in itself finding someone who will administer it. I have contacted Lloyds Pharmacy Homecare who could do it but need the referral from the Oncologist and there I am in the middle trying to get all parties to communicate. In the meantime my husband, Ian does not seem to have been advised on pain relief, he is in a lot of pain. At the moment he is taking Co- coda mol which doesn’t touch the surface. I’m trying to get to speak to his key worker for advice also.
He is struggling to eat and therefore losing weight. To say I’m at my wits end is an understatement.
Any advice would be very welcome
