  • Hello Onos

    I hope you don't mind me replying as I had a different type of cancer to your husband but hope by doing so it will bump your post. Hopefully someone who has experienced similar will then be able to offer support.

    I am sorry to hear of your husband's cancer journey. It must be very hard for you both and very understandable that you feel tired and fed up. To see him in pain and not being able to eat must be difficult. Can his CNS give any advice on foods that might help him? And also it is worth talking to them about his low mood, and problems going to the toilet. It may be worth asking for a dietician to be consulted. 

    I am sorry that you have also been struggling to get your finances sorted out. I see that you posted yesterday and had a response from somebody from Macmillan with some really good suggestions to help. Not sure if you have yet seen.

    Hopefully someone will now see your post and may be able to give you advice on what foods helped them. In the meantime if there is anything else you need, please do ask.

    I hope that your husband's pain settles and that he can get some support with his eating.
