I'm new to all of this so bear with me..
I was wondering if anyone can help me understand..
My dad was absolutely fine 9 weeks ago, then felet unwell with flu like symptoms, went to docs got told it was a virus.
Two weeks later felt no better so went back, had some blood tests which showed his pain receptor levels to be high??
After being admitted to the go ward at the local, and having xray and ct scan. A small shadow showed in his lung, after a biopsy and a pet scan it was decided he needed another biopsy. No diagnosis yet. We were chasing the biopsy last week. His nurse told us over the phone he was too ill to have anymore treatent he would be seeing the hospice the next day..
Saw hospice doc who put him on morphine for pains in legs and hands, still no diagnosis..
saw chest doc last week who said he was too ill for any treatment and yes he did have lung cancer 3cm was mentioned, not operable because too near the heart.
My question is they are not doing anything..
no nurse to visit at home my poor mum is toileting my dad, dressing him, doing everything and no one seems to care..
We are supposed to be getting ian rennie nurses but he is on a soon to be seen list..
What else can we do??
Please any advice would be great xx
