"Great advice from staff and other patients"

About: Ayrshire Hospice

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in January 2013. My dog knocked me over and I could not regain my feet. My wife called the G. P. and he called an ambulance. I had a scan and was moved to a hospital in Glasgow. I had an operation two days later. The surgeon told me he was unable to remove all the tumour and that I had an inoperable brain cancer. I asked the usual questions, how long etc. but he was unable to give a time, so I continue day to day, and take medication for pain and other things. I have good days and bad days. I go to the hospice one day a week and get great advice not only from the magical staff but from other patients also.

The team will be pleased that you feel they offer good advice and in our experience, when you share stories with other patients it is often helpful and reassuring.
