SusieAcres palliative care does not mean the disease can be controlled. I don’t mean to be combative in saying this. I know from painful experience that it means the disease is not curable but attempts will be made to stop the growths increasing, or in some cases shrink them.
The consultants are up to date with research and committed to doing the best they can for their patients. This doesn’t mean they can be sure what happens nexr
Exactly what my BinLaw was told back in June, he has had 3 months of Chemo, during which time he was so ill that he wanted to stop but he continued.
He had a Pet scan last week, looks and feels well, hopefully the disease has been slowed down if not halted altogether. They are thinking of offering him Immunotherapy depending on the results of his scan.
We have all our fingers crossed.
