Ive 'known' for months that my partner has something severe, i had thought lung cancer, but it seems it is oropharyngeal, throat cancer. He refused to talk about it, and told GP he had hayfever, so that is what his treatment was for, and nothing improved of course.
He coughs but covid tests all negative. Coughing thick phlem and red blood. I constantly clean up, the bedding, the bathroom.
He also has pain in neck and earache and has lost so much weight it is startling. He has used alcohol and tobacco all his adult life, and is now 73..
He finally saw the GP this week and he found tumour visible on soft pallate, He was referred to ENT at hospital and they rang today, but it is a phone call consltation. How can that help as this stage?
I have no-one to help us, im a carer for my 90 year old father too and i feel like this a phone consultation is just wasting time.
Thankyou for reading,
