Hi everyone, My husband has secondary cancer and the consultant has given him just under 2 years and that is being very optimistic. He is in hospital at the moment being treated for dehydration, the 3rd episode in as many months. We are hoping that when he comes out he can go to a local hospice while they sort out his pain relief, at the present the oxycodone either makes him very sleepy or very confused. The hospice is very concerned about his shaking, it was thought he had Parkinson's before official cancer diagnosis, and have said that he might not be able to treat with new medication (he also has af and a defibrillator fitted). If he is unable to get his pain under control and go to the hospice will we be able to have help with day to day life at home and not for just 30 minutes a day?
