Ian's story ..4 months then and now ..  27 February 2020

Posted by: Beverley Dodd

Hi Everyone ...This is Bev Ian's partner ..We just wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your kind support at this very stressful time ...I wanted to run by the past 4 months in a nutshell just to keep you in the picture ...In October Ian felt very tired and low on energy ...it got so bad he couldn't walk up our street home after work ..

After changing doctors to mine after his last one couldn't give any answers Ian had a blood test and scan along with a Colonoscopy as he was having bad abdominal pain ...The Colonoscopy showed a tumor the size of an orange ...blood tests showed liver cancer covering the whole liver. and stomach lining Doctors said he had 6 months to live without treatment... He started Chemotherapy and it is a very hard course of intense treatments..after 5 he was rushed to emergency room in pain ..they found he had a complete blockage inside his colon and a life saving operation had to be done the next day to save his life...a full permanent stoma had to be fitted but Ian was saved ... A week in hospital and no more chemo until it healed was now on the cards .. unable to walk and house bound life was harder Bev has to work but the nurses pop by to help and gradually Ian is a little stronger ...Chemo had to start again to shrink this terrible disease ..a scan showed that the last chemo started the shrink the tumors in the liver but the colon one has grown ... Ian must now finish 5 more chemo treatments and then he has to start ongoing with an unfunded drug (Avastin ..) This has a very high shrinkage rate and we are desperate to get enough money before treatment starts .. this chemo now will be 5 more sessions .before we need to use the funds we will use as much as we can raise to have as many treatments as possible to save Ian's life ...We are forever grateful to all the kind souls helping our cause ..God bless 🙏
