    Hi Brigette


    I have gone through radium treatment for lung cancer, I also have Emphysema. I am really interested in a support group that can help with my breathing problems, I do take inhalers but struggle with being out of breath ever time I move. 


    Thanks

    HI Elaine,

     

    Thanks for getting back to me with more details. You may find some information that will help you in our booklet “Breathing easier”: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/publications/breathing-easier. It may also be worth finding out what day services are available from your local hospice. Our Liverpool Hospice offers many day services which you can find here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/hospice-care/hospices/liverpool/services/day-services. If you wanted to be referred to any of them you would need to ask your GP to do that for you.

     

    I have also found the following list of support groups in your area on the Macmillan site: https://www.macmillan.org.uk/in-your-area/index.html?type=Practical%20help%20and%20support%20groups&latitude=53.4083714&longitude=-2.9915726&location=Liverpool&radius=30&tridionpromocount=0&nationalorganisationcount=0&nationalresultcount=0&.

     

    I hope this helps.

    Best Wishes

    Thank you Brigette,  I will practice the breathing, I did take the contact of Macmillan Support Group when I was at the hospital last week. 


    Thanks again for you time
