Hi you fantastic people. My wife Luk4ward is currently having a tough time with a suspected bowel blockage in hospital. I thought I would post this because I was told today that surgery at the moment is not an option and the oncologist has said chemotherapy is no longer an option. So I was told that all doors are closed, I am reeling from it. But what is distressing is that another surgeon explained it better. The oncologist said that they need to know if my wife's bowel is working and if it is then chemotherapy is an option, so a door opens. When my wife has a bowel incident she does not eat for the first few days and slowly recovers her appetite and I am currently encouraging her to eat. We both feel that it is working so the next couple of days will tell. I find these miscommunications are thriving within the MDT team, no wonder sometimes I am reduced to a wreck.
