I am sorry to read about your Dad’s diagnosis. Here on the Information and Support line we are not medically trained so therefore cannot give you direct information about the progress of your Dad’s illness. I would suggest that you speak to your Dad’s Consultant or take a look at http://www.britishlivertrust.org.uk/. We do have general information on preparing for the end of life which you can find here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/being-there/end-of-life-preparation. Our booklet ‘what to expect at the end of someone’s life’ may also help you. If you would like to talk to us please call on telephone 0800 090 2309.
There are a range of ways we can help you, from clear, useful information about living with a terminal illness to expert nursing care in your home.
