"My husband is losing the will to live"
Posted by Spinning897 (as ),
My husband has received excellent care from the community matron at home! Also from the district nurses who still visit the house as he has terminal lung cancer. The nurses and doctors at Library Health Centre in Chorley have also helped him a lot due to his COPD. In 2006 he had a prostate operation at Chorley, because Dr Khatri at the Royal Preston Hospital found diskitus in his spine from an epidural. As a result he endured a lot of x-rays. He now walks bent over and has lost weight and height. We have no social life as a result. We have also had to visit St. Catherines Hospice in Lancs due to Lymphoedema in his legs. I now try to attend all check ups with him, but it is hard because I have to take him in a wheelchair. He is losing the will to live. We take each day as it comes, as he cannot have anymore anaesthetic, chemo or radium. He now has a lot of pain medication. We are both now distressed as he has been told he has months to live.
