Hi Carol, ask oncologist for medication to relieve expected side effects as every little bit helps. Like Ken, I am also on pallitive care but am positive that I will still be around in a couple of years time. Wishing you and Ken all the best and sending big hugs. Moni x

Hope Ken copes well with treatment and gets more benefits than side effects. I think Moni's suggestions are helpful.

My partner Colin had a second round of chemo as palliative care and I think that it did give him quality of life for a while - if it were me - I would go ahead - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain - yes side effects can be off putting but I think we have to grab every opportunity and positive thinking is a must - I wish Ken all the luck in the world xx
