  • Hi Frank 

    Tough treatment but no real choice in the matter..... have you had a PEG feeding tube fitted?.... keep the forum updated on your progress.....lots of support and sound advice from others who have walked the treatment walk.

    Take care and best of luck 


  • Hi Frank29, sorry to hear your diagnosis, but you are in the right place for help and advice.. I will echo the need for a PEG, or feeding tube.. you're more than likely going to get problems with swallowing, so best to be prepared for that if the need arises.. someone will be along to offer more advice, etc.. so stick around.. the advice that I received throughout my treatment was priceless. cheers.
