Sadly I find myself in the situation where my father has been diagnosed with lung cancer however also very quickly developed vasculitis which has certainly impacted on him much more than the cancer. We have spoken to the consultant for the ward that he is currently on who specialises in respiratory and have asked about the type of vasculiitis treatment options etc we were given no diagnosis and my father was started on three days of IV prednisalone followed by a further 5 days of tablets which have now been stopped and surprise surprise his symptoms have started to get worse again.
I feel that he would benefit from being reciewed by a consultant who specialises in this field, he is currently In a hospital in Kent but as on high levels of oxygen unable to leave the ward. Does anyone know of any consultants local to Kent that we may be able to contact?
With many thanks
