Another doctor's trip with Denis today. This time it was to teh oncology department at Queen's Hospital in Romford. The consultant has decided not to put him through chemotherapy on the basis that the reduction in life quality is not offset by any possible gains from the treatment. Basically any treatment would not be effective and his life wold be made shitty from the side effects. Our priority is to ensure that his final months (perhaps a year) should be as comfortable as possible. On the plus side he will get a Macmillan nurse in the near future.
