My husband has recently been diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer.  It has spread to his Lungs, Liver & Kidneys.  His diagnosis was 6 weeks ago and he has an appointment for consultation with an Oncologist next week.  He is currently experiencing Cramp, he hasn't had a great deal of it previously but get a bout most e evenings at the moment.  Is this common?  Is anyone else experiencing Cramp?

Hi Red, 

I'm sorry your husband is experiencing cramp at the moment. I'm sure some of our members who have experienced this will share their advice and experiences with you soon but hopefully the oncologist will be able to give some tips on how to remedy this and make it more manageable. 

Our cancer nurses are available for a chat on 0808 8000 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m so do give them a call if you'd like to discuss this with them.

Best wishes to you both,
