I am a carer for my partner of 14 years diagnosed 3 years ago with advanced metastatic renal cancer with involvements in liver and lungs.Two months ago we were advised that he had a lesion in the front right lobe of the brain.Too add to that he has torn his Achilles tendon and has been off his legs for 12 weeks and all that is involved with that. Naturally now he has lost his cast and boot his leg is very weak and he keeps falling. It is such a worry to have to keep an eye on him wherever he goes, he feels I am checking up on him.
I need advice from some of your members on how to handle his daughter who rarely comes to see him or do anything to help me despite living 5 minutes away. I have had a knee replaced 9 months ago having waited 2 years until he was well enough to leave on his own for three nights while I had the operation.I need my other knee doing now and don't know what to do about leaving him, I feel so guilty but it needs doing badly now....Help? and advice please would be welcome.
