Chronic Indigestion

Posted by

My husband was diagnosed with Mesothelioma in Sept 2017.  He has has two cycles of chemo and we are going to try and push for Immunatherpy, however he is now suffering from  chronic indigestion.  He has not lost weight but is having problems digesting food.

He also has a hernia (I read Annabella's comments) however I think the problem is with Mesothelioma.  He also has a tightness across his chest.  

Any comments from fellow Meso sufferers???

Hi and welcome to the online community

I'm not a fellow mesothelioma sufferer but noticed that your post had gone unanswered.

I'm presuming that his CNS has not been able to solve the problem so you may want to post your question in ask a nurse, where one of the specialist nurses will aim to respond within 2 working days. Alternatively you could phone the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call, available from 9am to 8pm Monday to Friday and staffed by experienced specialist cancer nurses.

I do hope that your husband can get this sorted quickly as it must be very painful for him.
