Ms Mercury I know someone who suffered bad leg pain for some years and only found relief when prescribed Gabapentin: might be worth asking the doctor about if your husband has not already been prescribed it. smile

Mary I'm so sorry you and hubby continue to suffer and life continues to put obstacles in your way. You both are in my prayers every day. It is sad that you had to give up your special place by the seaside, but at the same time it is wonderful you were able to enjoy it together. It's takes a lot of love and commitment to be together for 49 years. You are both blessed to have family that care for you too.

I hope you continue to find comfort knowing you have so many friends here at GB.

Sending love, comfort and prayers,

Gerry catrub

I'm so sorry to hear this, Mary. It's so difficult to watch someone you love suffering pain. I hope your doctors can find something that will help.

Hello Boomers! Hope you are all keeping well and safe in these trying times.

Well, it's a brilliant start to the New Year for hubby and myself. After waiting weeks for his bowel examination to be carried out, it was finally done on Thursday. He got the results there and then and it showed diverticular disease in the small bowel and NOT CANCER! happydance This result, along with the result from the PET scan, means that he is CANCER FREE, at least for now! woot happydance rah hamster Can you tell I'm really happy about this? :rofl: What a relief for us both, and the family too of course. We can get on with our lives now.

He is still having problems mobilising and bother with his balance but he's a determined guy and keeps plodding away. I think it's safe to say he will never get back that which he has lost. He can't even feel his feet on the ground when walking due to nerve damage from the chemo. It's also doubtful if he'll ever drive again. His legs are still causing him a fair bit of pain, mostly at night. BUT, as we keep reminding ourselves, he's still here! He will see his consultant on 28th February so we shall see what he has to say then.

We celebrated his 70th birthday a few days before Christmas. Just a low-key day with the family. Christmas was spent much the same way but we were on our own in the evening and just had a quiet dinner for the two of us. How things have changed! It was always dinner at ours at Christmas for whoever wanted to join us. It's been a quiet day today apart from a short visit from Chris and his wife.

My dear friends, I can't put into words how very grateful we both are for your prayers, love and support over the past year. You lifted us up in the darkest of times and we will never forget. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. May 2022 be good to all of you. Keep safe!

Much love,

Mary hearts

Thank you, everyone! It's like a dark cloud has been blown away!

Ana & Starcom, I'm doing okay. I've had lots of dark days when it seemed there was no light at the end of the tunnel. I've always been a pretty strong person. I dealt well (I think) with my own situation and just got on with things because what else could I do? I'm not the type to sit back and feel sorry for myself, or to let others shoulder the burden.

With hubby, though, I just kind of fell to pieces a few times. I thought I was coping well but clearly I wasn't. I don't think the laxity of the health services helped at all. It was a constant battle with them to even get the least amount of information about hubby's condition, test results etc, and having to gee them up about his appointments constantly. His actual treatment, radiotherapy and chemo, went to schedule at all times but the rest left a lot to be desired. Thankfully, we're out the other end now. His type of lymphoma is known for coming back at some point. They won't do regular checks, it will all come down to symptoms returning and being investigated. Hopefully, it won't come back.

Thank you all once again for your love, prayers and support.

Much love,

Mary hearts

MsMercury, John is not doing very well, but that was inevitable, and we've had a lot of time together since his diagnosis The chemo is working, so he's still got some time left. But things do continue to deteriorate. Yesterday he was diagnosed with Shingles, and we spent the entire day in Emergency waiting for a doctor, which is not fun. But we still enjoy our days, at least most of the time, and spring is just around the corner so we'll soon be able to get out in the boat.
