    Hi Lynn, Joanne,

    I am very sorry to hear about your husband's diagnoses. You are both very welcome here, it can be really helpful to have contact with others who are in a similar situation. 

    I am not familiar with this cancer or stents.  Lynn, how is your husband now? Was he able to get some pain relief at hospital? Even if the pain is not unusual in these circumstances, he may be able to get some strong pain relief to help ease the discomfort. 

    Please come and chat at any time, it is very tough on you too when caring for loved ones going through cancer. The impact of cancer is huge and the feeling of lives being turned upside down, inside out, is not easy to work through. 
    You will find a lot of support and understanding here, there are many others who are in similar situations as yourselves. 

    Thinking of you both and your husbands.

    Chat soon,

    Lou x
