My brother has been diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus and has been unable to swallow for several months. He had a stent put in but it still takes him a long time sip by sip to take pain or chemo meds. My sister-in-law has tried GP for help but always comes up against a wall.
In theory he has a MacMillan nurse, but I don't know what that means - should she be the one to give him advice and help? I hate to see him so weak and dispirited.
