Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Glad if it can help in any way.  Yep - our house began to resemble a pharmacy with OxyContin and other controlled drugs required to control the pain and nausea.  I have to say I cannot fault the much maligned Irish health service in any way, but we were helped by having medical specialists in the family who knew how to work the system.  But the key thing was that Muriel dealt with her disease on her own terms - medics were there to help, but not to control.  I hope I don't have to go through what she went through, but I'm damn sure I will do it on my own terms when the time comes.
