Posted by Liver Cancer Patient (as ),
I was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in March of this year.
I have had a couple of liver drains inserted and experienced a few problems with severe pain, leakage and just the drain not working.
On several occasions I have referred to the XRAY Dept. , where Denise reigns to ask for her advice/help in solving the problem. She has come through for me each time when she could have easily referred me back to a Consultant. To give you an example; I was attending the Chemo unit and my drain had been leaking, she came up to the Chemo unit to fix it.
My Latest problem (a leak, 8/6). Again Denise has agreed to help. She is not scheduled to do this but just doing it completely 'out of kindness'. Denise is 'one of a kind' and definitely in the right profession.
I can't thank her enough for the kindness, patience and down-right dedication she has shown to me.
Denise, I hope you get to see this message. Apologies, I do not know your surname.
Denise is Dr Ganesha's assistant.
I also feel however, that the time between diagnosis and chemo could be improved.
