  • Hello   A warm welcome to the online Community.

    I am sorry to read of your husbands issues - he's a man - we are all reluctant to admit we are ill. Grin. I know I was!!

    The Community is divided up into different forums or chat rooms which are cancer specific. In view of your husbands issues I would advise you to join the Head and neck cancer forum . If you click on the link I have provided it will take you to the forum. once the page opens up if you click "join" on the black banner at the bottom of the page you will be able to either copy and paste your post or repost it. It will then come to the attention of Community members who are on the same or similar journey and they should have some answers for you.

    If I can do anything else for you please let me know. I hope you get some answers tomorrow and all goes well.

    Best wishes - Brian.
