Thank you in advance Pray

  • Hi Narnie, 

    Sorry to hear about your mum, my dad is currently having 30 sessions of radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer - they were reluctant to do chemo due to his age (he’s 77)

    He is currently on session number 6 and is coping fine, from what I’ve read the side effects start after week 2. I wish your mum the best.
