Hi, not been on for quite a time as Butch has been through hell and back and any help you can give is much appreciated. Butch was diagnoised in Feb with cancer of the gullet, started chemo but had it stopped after 2 days as damaged his kidneys. Started radiation treatment and just finished 4 weeks out of 5. The problem is now he is having problems urinating, last week had urine test and blood test and they put him on antibiotics. Both tests came back find, kidneys ok and no infection, he finished the course anyway. Now he is getting up every hour during night to urinate but only dribbles come out and has to really force it. Have tried ringing our local Macmillan at Blackpool but ansaphone and same with preston where he is having treatment, left messages but don't suppose they are there at the weekend. I would be grateful for any help and advice. Also he is on dihyrocodeine and when he falls asleep within seconds he is talking out loud and his body is moving, especially hands and legs, sometimes he wakes up with a start - he says he can hear tv but he's seeing people and explaining things to them, or it's like he's eating something. Has anybody else experienced this with this tablet? Tried other pain releif but they had bad side effects. Any advise, I'm at my wits end. Chrissy
