HI

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on breathing issues?  my partners treatment all finished a year and half ago but everything he does he has to rest and cant get a breathe, is this normal?  Just simple things like making tea going up to the toilet or tidying hes even struggling with.  Wondering is everyone like this or should I be worried

Im trying to get an app with the Dr or hospital again asap.

Thanks for reading Slight smile

  • Hi Sam Iv been wondering how your partner was doing I know you had some concerns a few months back . Has he stoped going to gym . 
    I think you were seeing doc back then hope it wasn’t anything to worrying . 

  • HI, he was seen back then and they had no concerns just said hes not losing weight and looks well so just carry on, which he has done.  he still goes to the gym its a good day a bad day then skip a couple type regime..hes started throwing up a lot and having these breathing issues which im getting worried about.. I always come on here and ask questions lol

    Hope you are doin well

  • Hi Samantha, 

    Has this been discussed with the oncologist? it might be worth a chat if not. 

    Also there are breathing exercises that can be carried out, someone on your Husbands medical team should be able to point you in the right direction on how to go about those. 

    I had a quick look at some of the study done on breathing issues after OC treatment and it seems quite a common things, so hopefully, if you can contact his MDT you may get some guidance that could help with this. 

    I hope you can

  • HI, no I havnt rang them yet I will say that to him today, just that he hasnt been seen in a while im hoping he would be due to go in for a meeting so he can discuss it.  Sometimes gets a bit worrying.  Thanks for the advice

  • We hold back sometimes, because we don't want to be nuisance; it was only yesterday that Dal was told by the research nurse that he should never feel that he is causing them any inconvenience. 

    I do hope the call is made to them, as it could be the start of the correct help coming your partners way.

  • Hi SamanthaN 

    Sorry to hear this ..I would definitely suggest a chat with his specialist nurse at your hospital ..I phoned ours when my husband mentioned a new symptom and within days he had been given an appointment for a CT scan ( today at 4pm) ..Nothing is too much trouble for the medical team .

    Hope it’s sorted out soon for you
