My husband has been told that after four different chemotherapy treatments, the latest one is not working, in fact there is a new growth and the old ones are growing all still in the abdomen. His pain has increased and his meds have gone up accordingly, but he is still working and refuses to slow down, and we have to let him do what he is able, for his own peace of mind.
We have been warned that the larger of the tumours could cause more problems with the bowel on which it is pressing, and this could occur suddenly. We had an event for four weeks back at the beginning of October when this happened, but resolved after steroids and stool softeners to decrease the inflammation in the bowel.
Quite where we go from here I do not know, the local palliative care team are involved and thank God for them, and it is like sitting on a ticking time bomb.
Has anyone got any experience of something this advanced please, good or bad it doesn't matter, I am just tired of fighting the unknown.
