Welcome to our online community, thank you for sharing your family’s
personal situation with us and others. Please don’t apologise, there are no stupid questions here.
We’re sorry to read about your father’s recent diagnosis and all that you are
going through as a family.
It can be normal for an illness to affect people in different ways. You
mentioned that your father has an appointment with an oncologist today. If the
appointment has now taken place, we hope it went as well as it could have. If it
is due to take place later today, we hope you get the opportunity to discuss
your concerns about your father feeling confused and agitated should you feel
comfortable to do so.
Here on the Support Line we can provide information and a listening ear to
anyone that needs to talk, you can reach us by calling Freephone 0800 090 2309.
We also have Support Line Nurses that you could speak to who may be able to provide
information on the issues you have mentioned. You can read more about our
Support Line services and opening hours here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line
. If you would like to find out more about the other services that we offer as
a charity, you can do so here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/professionals/patient-services
We hope this information will be of use to you all, and that others here on
the community will share with you their own personal experiences about what has
helped them to cope with a loved one’s symptoms.
