I was the carer for my Dad who recently lost his battle with prostrate cancer in first week of December 2020. We were able to look after him in the house until the very end. Although it was tough at times, but it was also very rewarding (due to the time spent with family) and has given me significant experience of various issues or problems men are likely to face during the journey.
I have been a silent observer of this forum during my journey along with my lovely Dad. It provided me with the required knowledge and courage to carry on. I ,therefore, want to take this opportunity to thank everyone including moderators and regular vocal members. I will try to contribute with my experience (pain management, diet, medication, end of life care etc) in future conversations where possible.
Although he was on end of life palliative care but on the last day my Dad suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. He was able to have his showers (with support) and food (independently) till the very last day ( two things he liked most) and did not undergo the suffering of the final weeks I was mentally gearing up for.
Miss you Dad!!!!!!
